Michigan's new approach to redistricting by an independent citizens commission has now come full circle, from signature gathering for the statewide ballot initiative in 2018, to strong statewide support in that fall's election, creation of the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission, their work drawing new districts with extraordinary input from Michigan citizens, and now the new districts being used for the first time in the 2022 elections.

Join us for a final webinar in our redistricting series, to look back at this consequential change in state policy and to review how this new approach played out this fall, including its impacts on races and election outcomes, and how it compares to experiences in other states. We'll hear from an expert panel covering these and related issues, including their reactions to audience questions.

Moderator:
Matt Grossmann, Director, Institute for Public Policy and Social Research and Professor of Political Science at Michigan State University.

Panelists:
Moon Duchin, MGGG Redistricting Lab
Zach Gorchow, Executive Editor and Publisher at Gongwer News Service Michigan
Nancy Wang, Executive Director, Voters Not Politicians
