The November 8, 2022 election was the first to use the new election districts created by the Michigan Independent Redistricting Commission. In this class Margaret Leary will review the Commission’s origin and lead us through the creation of new election districts for Congress, the state Senate, and the state House. She will discuss several lawsuits filed and resolved by the end of August last year. She will cover the results of, and responses to, the November 8 election. Responses may include the opinions of candidates, political scientists from University of Michigan and Michigan State University, the national press, and individuals and organizations that may have filed new lawsuits.
Margaret A. Leary received a B.A. from Cornell University, an M.A. from the University of Minnesota, another from Eastern Michigan University, and a J.D. from the William Mitchell College of Law. She taught at the University of Michigan Law School and was director of the University of Michigan Law Library from 1984 to 2011.
