A group called Detroiters for Reform wants to change the way Detroit elects its City Council. Currently, the 9 Councilmembers are elected at-large, a situation which many feel makes them unaccountable to voters. Detroiters for Reform wants to divide the city into 9 Wards, each with a single Councilmember. They are collecting signatures to put the question on this year’s ballot, and need 32,218 by August 3rd – a tight timeline.
The Detroit News supports the change: Districts are overdue for Detroit City Council
