Wisconsin Deserves Fair Voting Maps!
To: Wisconsin State Legislators
As Wisconsinites, we are sick and tired of our elected officials manipulating our electoral maps behind closed doors for narrow partisan gains.
Our districts should be drawn in a fair, transparent and impartial way, and we, as voters, should have an equal say in who gets elected.
You shouldn’t be able to choose who your constituents are. We should choose you.
Iowa solved this problem more than 35 years ago when it entrusted the job of drawing fair district maps to a nonpartisan legislative agency, like our Legislative Reference Bureau. Civil servants draw the maps, not the politicians, and the public is involved in the process. The people of Iowa love it. If it works in Iowa, it’ll work here in Wisconsin, too.
We urge you to pass legislation now to establish fair, nonpartisan, and transparent mapping of electoral districts modeled after the process in Iowa.
