In Michigan, the House of Representatives initiates an impeachment, and a majority vote is required. In the upcoming legislative session, Republicans will have a 58-52 majority.

Three representatives would be appointed to prosecute the impeachment case in the Michigan Senate. Two-thirds of senators must vote to convict the Governor in order for her to be removed. With Republicans holding a 22-16 majority in the Michigan Senate, at least three Democrats would need to vote for her removal.
