Michigan election 2022: Your guide to newly drawn congressional districts

What to know before you vote

Michigan Congressional Districts Map (Michigan.gov)

Redistricting is the process of enacting new congressional and state legislative district boundaries based on updated population data.

Michigan’s 13 U.S. representatives and 148 state legislators are all elected from political divisions called districts. District lines are redrawn every ten years following the completion of the United States Census.

Michigan’s new congressional and legislative district boundaries officially became law on March 26, 2022. A 2018 constitutional amendment transferred the power to draw district lines from the state legislature to an independent redistricting commission, the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. This is the first time in state history that the redistricting process was handled by an independent citizen-led group.

With the Midterm Elections approaching (Aug. 2) and absentee voter ballots arriving, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the new districts, as your ballot and candidates might look a little different. Below you’ll find candidates listed by district as well as maps of new district lines. (You can also click here for an interactive map where you can use your exact address.)
