“For years and years it has been the policy of the Ann Arbor City Council to draw wards – the council districts – in such a way that marginalizes the student vote. Instead of creating one or two wards that are near-majority student, the council has dispersed the student vote across several wards, making it almost impossible for students to get elected to the council, though not for a lack of effort. In this city of which students comprise approximately one third of the population, not one sits on the council.”
