I'm writing to inquire about engaging your organization in Michigan's first-ever Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission<https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.michigan.gov%2Fsos%2F0%2C4670%2C7-127-1633_91141---%2C00.html&data=02%7C01%7CReinhardtS%40michigan.gov%7C64556d8b87844e058c8c08d7af689516%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637170736013780948&sdata=cdik8YNJ9PTKOpoJzpYu6dHrsmh%2BsKlY8b%2F8QfUcQqo%3D&reserved=0>.

We're eager to engage you and your community to invite them to apply and inform them about our new free online notary services and email submission option for applications. We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to reach your community directly via email, newsletter, or a virtual townhall or video conference meeting.

Would you or your organization be able to help spread the word about this historic opportunity, via social media, email, newsletter, or virtual meeting?

The deadline to apply - June 1 - is only six weeks away, so we need to get the word out quickly. Our current applicant pool statistics demonstrate great interest and enthusiasm from Michiganders of all backgrounds, but as you can see here<https://www.michigan.gov/documents/sos/ICRC_Whos_applying_682238_7.pdf> there is more work to be done to generate applications from a broad cross-section of the state.

This is an extraordinary moment for all Michiganders to get involved and ensure the fairness and integrity of our elections. We would truly appreciate the chance to invite your community to apply and be part of this transparent, citizen-led process.

If this is of interest to you, we would be happy to set up a call with our team to discuss further details and opportunities. You can find out more at our website, RedistrictingMichigan.org, and follow us on Twitter<https://twitter.com/RedistrictingMI>, Facebook<https://www.facebook.com/RedistrictingMI/>, and Instagram<https://www.instagram.com/redistrictingmi/> @redistrictingMI.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest regards,

Sally Marsh
Director of Special Projects
Michigan Department of State
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson
