"For the first time in our state’s history, the people of Michigan voted to overhaul the redistricting process and develop an Independent Citizen’s Redistricting Commission. After much deliberation, many public hearings and lawsuits, the maps are final" (NMCA, 2022).

That’s why the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance developed our 2022 Primary Election Guide. This page is intended to be a matter-of-fact guide to help understand new district lines and corresponding candidate information.
