Help establish fair voting maps in Wisconsin

Under Wisconsin’s current redistricting system, whichever party controls the legislature also has the power draw our state's voting maps. In 2011, this process resulted in “gerrymandered" congressional and state legislative districts that suppress competition in elections and deprive voters of the right to choose their representatives.

Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Landmark Redistricting Case Challenging Partisan Gerrymander

June 19, 2017

The Supreme Court's decision this morning to hear Gill v. Whitford is good news for the millions of Americans currently being denied the right to elect representatives of their choosing thanks to partisan gerrymandering. By upholding the decision of a three-judge federal panel that the Wisconsin State Assembly map legislators approved following the 2010 census is an illegal partisan gerrymander the Court can end the excessive partisan manipulation of district lines across the country. Common Cause v. Rucho, a challenge to North Carolina's congressional map on partisan grounds, is also making its way through the courts and will be heard by a three-judge panel on June 26.
