Michigan Congressional Districts - what to know about the new electoral map for 2022 elections
(FOX 2) - The 2022 Midterm elections this August and November will be the first that Michigan voters cast their ballots in the state's newly drawn districts.
The boundaries drawn for Michigan's Congressional races, as well as state senate and representative races will be the first created using a new nonpartisan redistricting committee tasked with organizing districts.
The first difference in Michigan's new Congressional map is that it has one less district. That's because the state's population growth didn't keep pace with other states, leading to only 13 seats in Congress. Here's where they are and the cities and counties that make up each district.
