2021 is a historic year. Every 10 years in coordination with the Census, states draw new lines for federal and state legislative districts. The particular significance of this year’s process is that voters, not partisan legislators, will be drawing the lines.
In November 2018 Michigan voters approved a constitutional amendment that established criteria for the creation of a Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (MICRC). Any registered voter could apply to be on the MICRC, 4 Republican, 4 Democrat and 5 Independent members were randomly chosen to make up the body of 13. The MICRC has been meeting since September to carry out the task of redistricting. Another major change to legislative redistricting in Michigan was the addition of new criteria. Along with compliance with federal law, it is now mandated that districts reflect the state’s diverse populations and the consider the new criteria of “Communities of Interest.” (COIs)
