Upcoming Statewide Ballot Proposals

Redistricting

With a simple majority vote the voters of Michigan can create an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission in charge of redistricting, ensuring that voters will choose their politicians, not the other way around. www.votersnotpoliticians.com

One Fair Wage

One Fair Wage of Michigan is proposing gradually increasing the minimum wage to $12 by 2022, and for workers who receive tips, the minimum wage would get to $12 per hour by 2024. One Fair Wage has 180 days to gather valid signatures of Michigan voters statewide to qualify for the November 2018 ballot. www.onefairwage.com

Earned Paid Sick Leave

Earned Paid Sick Leave will ensure that all Michigan workers have the ability to earn paid sick days to use when they are ill or need to take care of a family member. Time to Care Coalition will collect signatures statewide in an effort to bring the question to the voters in Nov. 2018. www.mitimetocare.org
