The midterm elections are coming up on Nov. 8, and advocates are reminding Michiganders to plan now on how, when, and where they will cast their ballots.

In November of 2018, voters passed ballot initiatives in three states to curb gerrymandering by reforming the redistricting process. Four years later, as redistricting battles once again sweep the nation, it’s time to look back at what those initiatives accomplished, and what still needs to be done. 

With the new year comes more litigation. In the past year, the League has continued our work of fighting against anti-voter bills and purges, challenges to new district maps, and pushing back against the increased attacks on reproductive rights. Here are a handful of the issues you may want to keep an eye on in 2022. 

The League of Women Voters of Michigan today filed an amicus brief with the Michigan Supreme Court in support of the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission’s proposed extended timeline for adopting final redistricting plans. 

After system crashes in Virginia and Florida, other states are warned of the possibility of glitches as registration deadlines approach.

Today, a federal judge permitted LWV of Michigan and five local Leagues to intervene in support of the State in Daunt v. Benson, a federal lawsuit concerning voter purges.
