Following the 1985 Census, and the agreement to hold one every five years thereafter, districts in the House were redistricted slightly. In addition, three seats - in the states of Iron, Marquette, and Menominee - were added.

One third - ten seats - of the senate, the so-called "Class 3" members, were up for re-election, as was the entire house.

The Liberal Democrats, benefiting from both their superior organization and the popularity of President Stowe, won both houses once again, even managing to slightly increase their margin of victory in the house by both taking a seat from the Conservatives, and winning most of the new additions. They did, however, lose one of their seats in the Senate, in the state of Luce, to the better-organized Conservative candidate, John D. Porterfield.

Both Cyril Symes, Socialist senator from Chippewa, and Dudley B. Wells, Independent senator from Delta, won re-election. A Socialist, Steven Bolden, was also elected to the House from a district in Sault Ste. Marie.

Wells, however, announced shortly after his victory that he would not seek another term in the senate in 1992, leaving the seat open at that time.

All parties involved considered the election to have been a success.
