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.
good news is that we CAN establish an impartial process for drawing
Wisconsin’s voting maps, but we need your help to increase support for
this vital reform.

To the Wisconsin State Legislators,
As Wisconsinites, voters and constituents, we call on you to reform Wisconsin’s current partisan redistricting system.
look to you, our elected representatives, to bring competition back to
Wisconsin’s elections, ensuring that voters have a real choice at the
polls, by removing politics from – and restoring transparency to – a
process that has become far too partisan, secretive and expensive.
Our neighbor, Iowa, has had a non-partisan redistricting process in place since 1981 in which state legislative and congressional district boundaries are drawn by a non-partisan legislative state agency without any regard to partisan political considerations and factors. This would be a good model for Wisconsin to emulate in order to return elections to we, the people. We urge you to support efforts to have a new process like this in place prior to the 2020 Census and the redistricting process that follows.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
