First of all, I am a Michigan resident.

I just recently read that the Michigan Democratic Party has proposed that our delegates be seated 69 for Hillary Clinton and 59 for Barack Obama. (

I called up the Michigan Democratic Party (517-371-5410) to inquire about this. They said that this was proposed to the DNC as a solution to get our delegates heard. And that it needs to get approved by them.

I then called the DNC (202-863-8000) and she said that the proposal was going to be reviewed on the 31st of this month.

I tried to explain to her, as a Michigan resident, how I don't feel this is fair. #1, we never had Obama on the ballot. And #2, a TON of people never voted because of either he was not on the ballot, or because we were told that we wouldn't get represented anyway.

She said they would make it as fair as possible and basically then got really rude and really wanted me to get off the phone.

Regardless of WHO you want to be President, this is not a fair solution. I urge anyone who cares about a fair political process to call the DNC and let them know this.
