A national organization recognized for registering and informing voters will hold an event next week looking at the issue of redistricting.

The League of Women Voters of the Ann Arbor Area’s Brighton-Howell Unit was recently formed after being inactive for a number of years locally. The League, which is a non-partisan organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, will be holding an educational event on Monday, March 12th entitled “Redistricting in Michigan: Should Politicians Choose Their Voters?” It will be held at the Brighton District Library from 2-3pm and will feature Barbara Hilbert from the League of Women Voters Ann Arbor Area as the presentation speaker.

League officials say because there has been a lot of discussion about redistricting in Michigan recently, they encourage anyone who would like to know more to attend and learn what redistricting is, how it is done in Michigan, how it could be changed and why they should care.
