Michigan to loose another seat in Congress

This will make the fifth consecutive Census where Michigan will lose a seat in the U.S. House as the West and South see larger population gains. It’s not yet known what Michigan’s 13 districts will look like, might mean at least two current members of congress will be put into one district.

Congressional apportionment also impacts the number of votes a state has in the Electoral College. Michigan will lose one electoral vote, dropping from 16 to 15, based on the total number of representatives in the U.S. House and two U.S. senators.

Other States loosing a seats Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
