2020 Census PL 94.171 Data
Move these (2) Oxford Twp Precincts with the rest of Oxford and Addison Twp in MI46. They share one non-partisan community of interest in their single, shared school system.
Why after many, many displeased comments on all the previous maps, have you not corrected these egregious districts that serve to dilute the voices of Pontiac voters and other communities as well? The residents of these communities will not accept the "it's too much work" answer. Commenters from Lake Orion, Oxford, Clarkston, Independence Township, Waterford, Auburn Hills, Bloomfield and Pontiac have all stated that these districts do not preserve COIs and do not represent the communities involved in any way. Fix this!
This district is a good start! The I-94 corridor is a critical COI, and this map helps partisan fairness. It could be better and more compact if you draw it like this: https://www.michigan-mapping.org/submission/p6057 40% of Jackson votes for Democrats, so it should have at least 1 competitive or lean-D district between its state house, state senate, and Congressional maps. You're on the right track!

I can not believe you have split Muskegon County into 4 different State House Districts. This is ridiculous. We have gone from two to four. You should keep communities of interest together. This is crazy.
try tweaking map #193, it's much better map. Not happy with Kent County
Map still stinks. Metro Detroit is sliced and diced into an unrecognizable mess. Western Michigan is also getting ripped apart. Communities and COIs are ignored. There is a better way to comply with the regulations that will keep communities whole and create fair and adequately represented districts. This map is good for no one.

I support this map with reservations. I believe that the consideration of the northern part of Bay county as a community of interest affiliated with the Watershed that includes Saginaw Bay is important.
The maps the commission is making in West Michigan area awful. Start doing your research on communities that belong together. Grabbing population just because is a ridiculous way to make a map. Do better! This map, plus the one actively being drawn has 3 different seats put into a small suburb area. Keep it whole

I agree with Jennifer Austin -- Fair Maps are paramount. I have been lobbying for a simple Midland County House District for better representation without ever imagining that Midland could be drawn into a competitive district! Please take the time to look at and consider the maps the AFL-CIO have drawn. This is not to disparage the work you have drawn -- with you we have all learned a lot but now is not the time for ego. Your efforts are admirable. Thank you. Portal I.D. p3621 https://miaflcio.org/fairmaps/
I'm torn on this map. I would love to see districts more compact and square. I would love to see COIs kept together. And I would love to see House districts that aren't spread out so candidates don't have to travel as much to talk to voters and concerns are more centralized around an area. At the same time, partisan fairness is the most important factor as far as I am concerned. We have had maps that decided how our legislature was made up for decades. Republicans gerrymandered so badly that even though there were a majority of voters who voted for Democrats, the Republicans held minority rule. That has to end. We need maps that achieve as close to zero political bias as possible and if that means my district is shaped like a bone then so be it. We can't all have what we want. The most important thing right now is to have a legislature that works for the people, not the extreme portions of their party. If the state house and senate are evenly split, then maybe they will be forced to compromise in Lansing and we can have good governance in this state.
