Elected Speaker

Tom Leonard
Republican

An election was held on November 8, 2016 to elect all 110 members to Michigan's House of Representatives. The election coincided with elections for other offices, including U.S. President, U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. The primary election was held on August 2, 2016.

There was no change in the composition of the House as Republicans retained control, winning 63 seats compared to 47 seats for the Democrats.[2][3]

Members elected at the 2016 election served in the 99th Michigan Legislature which convened on January 11, 2017.

Background[edit]

Over one-third of the House could not seek re-election because of term-limits, with the legislators who were elected in the 2010 mid-term elections, that saw the House Republican conference pick up 21 seats, the largest net gain for one party in an election since Michigan's newly constituted term-limits went into effect in 1992.[4][5]

Term-limited members[edit]

Under the Michigan Constitution, members of the state Senate are able to serve only two four-years terms, and members of the House of Representatives are limited to three two-years terms. The following members were prevented by term-limits from seeking re-election to the House in 2016.

Special Elections[edit]

1st District[edit]

The 1st District seat became vacant after Democratic state Rep. Brian Banks had to resign from the legislature as part of plea agreement with the office of Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. In exchange for his resignation from the House, the state would just drop multiple felony counts against Banks in which he was alleged to falsify documents to obtain a private loan before he was elected to the state House. Banks agreed to plead guilty to one misdemeanor and spend one day in the Wayne County Jail.[7]
