There are three statewide ballot proposals to be decided on November 6th. Two of them have to do with voting. Proposal 2 is being called “Voters Not Politicians” and aims to end gerrymandering. If approved, it would create an independent commission to redraw legislative and congressional district lines after each census. Proposal 3 is being called “Promote the Vote.” It would create greater access to voter registration and aims to increase voter participation. Both could have impacts on the overall health of Michigan’s environment.
In this month’s “1st Friday” conversation, “Promote the Vote” leader and former Michigan ACLU executive director Kary Moss discusses the implications with WEMU’s David Fair and Michigan League of Conservation Voters executive director, Lisa Wozniak.
