The latest in Michigan

Nov. 2, 2021

On Nov. 1, Michigan’s independent redistricting commission — composed of four Republicans, four Democrats and five independents — voted to move three draft map proposals to the next stage of the process, where they will presented for public consultation for the next 45 days. The three maps all have much narrower efficiency gaps (the ​​difference between each party’s share of “wasted votes” — those that don’t contribute to a candidate winning) and a smaller difference between the partisan leans of the median district and the state as a whole than some of the earlier proposals and the old map. They are roughly proportional to the state, as well: Two of the maps would create five Democratic-leaning seats, six Republican-leaning seats and two highly competitive seats, while the third would create four Democratic-leaning seats, six Republican-leaning seats and three competitive seats (due to population shifts, Michigan is losing one congressional district).

A fourth map may also be made available for public consultation: During Monday’s meeting, commissioner Brittni Kellom, a Democrat from Detroit, passionately proposed a map that would split the city in a way she felt better addressed community feedback. While discussion of the map was quashed, commission Chair Rebecca Szetela agreed to look at Kellom’s proposal overnight. The commission is expected to adopt final maps on Dec. 30.
