Michigan State Senate Districts
Michigan State House Districts
Michigan Election Information
In the 2016 election, Clinton lost in Michigan by 0.2% (10,700 votes) in a nearly evenly split electorate. However, in the State House, Republicans control 53% of the seats while in the State Senate, Republicans control 58% of the seats. The Republicans lost their Trifecta in Michigan in 2018. Since 2010 that trifecta has led to significant corrupt gerrymandering and voter suppression, entrenching Republicans in power. If you are a Democrat in Michigan, you are still NOT being represented in your State House or Senate. November 2020 is your final chance to right the imbalance and bring fairness back into Michigan politics before the 2020 census redistricting.

Only one was lost in 2018. The Democrats need to pick up 4 seats in 2020 to regain the majority.

Republican Legislative Record 2018
Voting in lockstep on issues, the Republican bloc in the Michigan State House of Representatives has imposed an agenda on Michigan that does not represent the views of the general population.
