For Immediate Release Federal Court rules that Wisconsin's 2011 Gerrymandering of State Legislative Districts is Unconstitutional

Posted on November 22, 2016


On Monday, a federal 3-judge court panel issued an unprecedented decision that is a huge victory for all of those voters of Wisconsin who want and deserve a real choice in their elections and a system of redrawing state legislative districts after each Census in a non-partisan, transparent and reputable process.

Never before in the nation's history has partisan gerrymandering been struck down as unconstitutional. 

Yesterday, that standard changed for the betterment of democracy – not just in Wisconsin, but nationally.
