The Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission released a series of ten congressional and state legislative maps, of which the public will be allowed to comment upon during hearings that will last through October 29th. The four congressional maps radically change the districts and could force several incumbent pairings either for the general election or respective party primaries. Michigan loses one seat in reapportionment, so at least one sitting member will not return next year.
The process is far from complete, and much will still happen until the maps are completed on or around November 1st. The maps suggest that the Republicans will lose one seat through the draw, though several become more competitive suggesting that the final outcome will be unclear until the various district electorates cast their ballots.
