League Of Women Voters To Hold Informational Session On Voting Changes

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 9, 2020

The League of Women Voters Grand Traverse Area will hold a "Making Democracy Work" public meeting on Tuesday, January 14 from 12pm to 1:30pm at the Traverse Area District Library.

Margaret Goeman, educator and League member, will cover Michigan’s new voting rights (resulting from the 2018 passage of Proposal 3) and the Citizens Independent Redistricting Commission (created by Proposal 2 to end gerrymandering).

The presentation will include a discussion of Michigan’s new voting rights, early voting, and expanded voter registration. The meeting will also cover the Citizens Independent Redistricting Commission, including how members will be selected and how the Commission will function. The program is free and open to the public.

"The League of Women Voters is pleased to present educational information on the implementation of these two proposals which amended the Michigan Constitution,” says Mary Grover, first vice president. “This presentation will allow voters to learn more about how the proposals are being implemented in 2019 and beyond. Margaret Goeman will also do a presentation on the 2020 Census on March 17. The League of Women Voters wants to make sure everyone in Michigan who is eligible to vote is registered, and that everyone is counted.”
