Should Michigan redraw its voting districts? And what should the process be to do that? Can the state ever have perfectly drawn districts that never guarantee a political party-based outcome?
Those questions — and more — are part of the Policy Meets The People – MI Voice, MI Vote live show on redistricting.
On Tuesday, June 26, WDET is broadcasting a live one-hour special to discuss redistricting issues in Michigan and beyond. WDET’s Sandra Svoboda hosts with Jerome Vaughn moderating.
Show Guests (in order of planned appearance):
Policy Meets The People – MI Voice, MI Vote gives metro Detroiters an opportunity to find out how key legislation, laws and policies created in Lansing affect their daily lives. The WDET news team will examine four issues: education, transportation/infrastructure, water quality and gerrymandering. The topics were chosen by residents in the seven-county metro Detroit region as issues that would help determine their decisions in the voting booth in 2018 August primary and November general elections.
Here’s other WDET work on the gerrymandering issue:
