The nuclear physics program envisaged at the Medium-energy Electron-Ion Collider (MEIC) currently being developed at the Jefferson Lab calls for collisions of 3-11 GeV/c longitudinally polarized electrons and 20-100 GeV/c, in equivalent proton momentum, longitudinally or transversely polarized light ions. In this paper, we present a scheme based on figure-8 shaped booster and collider rings that provides the required ion polarization arrangement in the MEIC's ion collider ring.
