DEARBORN, Michigan – Do you have ideas on how to improve redistricting in Michigan? The League of Women Voters of Dearborn and Dearborn Heights will be hosting a public forum on Monday, March 26 to discuss the results of Michigan’s 2011 redistricting and how to improve the process moving forward.
The program will feature presentations on the 2011 redistricting process and approaches used by other states, followed by a facilitated discussion about ideas for reform.
The featured speaker is State Sen. Morris Hood III, who represents Dearborn and neighboring communities.
This event is the latest in a series of discussions hosted by local Leagues around the state to examine the different ways that states draw political districts and how voters’ interests are affected.
The League of Women Voters is one of the nation’s largest and most longstanding voter registration groups. League volunteers help hundreds of people register or update their registration each election year, focusing on reaching underrepresented groups such as young voters, minorities and first-time voters.
