SEMMantics Talk – The Voter Redistricting Overhaul

Susan SmithAs a result of the proposals passed by Michigan voters in 2018, there are massive changes happening in how we can register to vote and how and where we can vote, with three important elections coming up in 2020. Michigan is also in the process of building a completely new way to create voting districts after the 2020 census.

Susan Smith, past president of the Michigan League of Women Voters, will explain all these changes in an educational, nonpartisan presentation you will not want to miss.

Registration is now officially open for this year’s RG, SEMMantics 2020, being held April 17 – 19, 2020.
