LANSING, Mich. — The leaders of the group, Voters Not Politicians, held a media round table on Friday in Lansing.

They are the group behind the implementation of redistricting in Michigan.

They say that in 2018, at the November election, that their reform amendment was supported by 61% of Michigan voters.

That was Proposal 2, which ended gerrymandering by creating an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission.

On Friday, they met to provide updates on the implementation of the redistricting reform amendment.

A commission for redistricting is in the works and needs applicants.
