ㅤ"If approved by voters in November, the measure would create an independent commission made up of four Democrats, four Republicans and five independents selected by Michigan’s secretary of state.
ㅤThat panel would be responsible for redrawing the state’s congressional districts every 10 years. The goal, advocates say, is to end alleged partisan gerrymandering by state lawmakers, who are currently tasked with redistricting.
ㅤUnder the state’s current rules, the party in power in the state legislature gets to decide congressional boundaries."ㅤ
