Voters Not Politicians
Article 1, Section 1 of the Michigan constitution reads: “All political power is inherent in the people.” This basic principle that ultimate power resides in the people is the foundation of our mission at Voters Not Politicians. Voters Not Politicians defends and promotes policies that strengthen democracy. Michigan’s government must truly represent the will of the people, all votes must count equally, and all voices must be heard. Our representatives must not be unduly influenced by lobbyists or special interests or motivated by personal gain.
About Voters Not Politicians
Voters Not Politicians was founded as a ballot initiative to end gerrymandering in Michigan. On November 6, 2018, 61% of Michigan voters supported VNP’s Redistricting Reform Amendment to put the power to draw election district maps in the hands of voters – not politicians.
Our campaign success has inspired a voter-led, pro-democracy political reform movement in Michigan. Our thousands of volunteers are engaged, empowered, and committed to do more to strengthen our democracy.
