DETROIT (FOX 2) - The Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission is seeking public input about proposed legislative maps.
Five meetings will be held across the state. They will also be available to watch via Zoom.
The commission began to vote on draft maps earlier this month after seven weeks of creating them. The state constitution requires that at least five public meetings be held to get comments from residents.
"We want to make sure people have the ability to comment, submit their maps," said Rebecca Szetela, the commission chairperson.
