Promoting Fair Elections

The strong partisan divide in Lansing can be attributed to a foundational flaw in our democratic process: allowing partisan officials to draw their own district borders. In a healthy democracy, voters pick their elected representatives. Gerrymandering turns that on its head by allowing politicians to pick their voters. That’s why Jeremy offered a solution to this problem by sponsoring legislation that would create an independent redistricting commission to make Michigan politics fair and more responsive to people. Jeremy also believes that money plays an oversized role in Michigan elections and introduced a plan to limit the influence of wealthy donors in our democracy. He continues to be a leading voice in the legislature to dismantle efforts to supress voter rights.
