Last November, over 57 percent of Michigan voters cast ballots for President Obama. Now Lansing Republicans want to change the rules of the game by rigging Michigan’s electoral votes ahead of the 2016 election.
Lansing Republicans have already tilted the scales in their favor in Michigan’s legislative and congressional districts. Last year Republican politicians drew new maps that gave themselves a majority of seats, even though Democrats won more total votes in Michigan.
This isn’t what our founding fathers had in mind when they drafted the constitution.
Help fight back by signing the petition and urging Gov. Snyder to stand up for fair elections.

Dear Gov. Snyder -
We, the undersigned, call on you to do the right thing and publicly commit to vetoing any changes to the electoral system. America was founded on the principle that we're all created equal, but this would make some people's votes count more than others. These new maps would determine the winner of Michigan's electoral votes, making it easier for Republicans to steal the next presidential election. This isn't what our founding fathers had in mind when they drafted the constitution.
