MADISON - In January, the 37th Wisconsin county passed a Fair Maps resolution! That means MORE THAN HALF of all Wisconsin county boards—representing 64% of Wisconsin residents—that have formally asked the state to end gerrymandering and adopt a nonpartisan process for drawing the state’s voting district maps.

It’s high time for the Chairs of the State Senate and Assembly elections committees to hold public hearings on two bills that would have a nonpartisan legislative agency draw district maps – so legislators won’t be able to “choose their voters” through gerrymandering!

Contact State Senator Devin LeMahieu and Assembly Representative Kathy Bernier and demand a public hearing for SB13 and AB44 before the current legislative session adjourns. Time is running out!

• State Senator Devin LeMahieu, (608) 266-2056

• Representative Kathy Bernier, (608) 266-9172
