Michigan House of Representatives

The Michigan House of Representatives is the lower house of the Michigan Legislature. There are 110 members, each of whom is elected from constituencies having approximately 77,000 to 91,000 residents, based on population figures from the 2000 federal U.S. Census.

Members are elected in even-numbered years, and take office on the January 1 following the November general election. Each member is limited to serving three, two-year terms.

Title

Members of the House of Representative are commonly referred to as representatives. Because this shadows the terminology used to describe members of Congress, constituents and news media, using the Associated Press guidelines for journalist, often refer to members as state representatives to avoid confusion with their federal counterparts. Technically, members are not representatives and should be referred to as a member of the Legislature (abbreviated to ML) or a member of the House of Representatives (abbreviated to MHR). This is the same with members of the United States House of Representatives, who increasingly use member of Congress (abbreviated to MC) as a post-nominal title.[citation needed]

As elected officials, members of the House of Representatives also receive the courtesy title of the Honorable (abbreviated to Hon. or Hon'ble) for life.
