Ballot Proposal 2 - Voters not Politicians Passed!
The League of Women Voters of Michigan supported Proposal 2, which will create an Independent Redistricting Commission. This constitutional amendment will establish an impartial commission of voters (not politicians) who will be charged with creating new district maps for state and congressional offices that cannot favor one party or candidate. This commission will operate in a completely transparent manner and will create maps based on fair criteria. Gerrymandering benefits politicians, and hurts the rest of us, regardless of our political preferences. The League urged a YES vote on Proposal 2 so that voters can choose their politicians.

The Promote the Vote Ballot Proposal 3 Passed!
Promote the Vote was a proposed constitutional amendment to:
- Make voting more accessible and convenient
- Ensure that everyone's votes are secure and counted
- Ensure that everyone's voice is heard
This campaign was a broad coalition striving to make voting more accessible for all Americans and to pass a Voting Rights Amendment to the Michigan Constitution. By making voting more accessible and secure, our democracy will better serve all Americans and our laws will better reflect the will of the people. Everyone - Republicans, Democrats and Independents - deserves to have their vote secure and counted. The League of Women Voters of Michigan was a proud member of this coalition.
