MADISON - The Supreme Court did not give us the ruling we had hoped against partisan gerrymandering. As we explained in our amicus brief, the Wisconsin maps deny many citizens the full power of the vote and should be redrawn. The current redistricting process protects the party in power -- whichever party it is -- and is not an open and transparent process carried out in the interest of the voters. It is notable that the Court ruling still allows the plaintiffs a chance to demonstrate this in further legal proceedings.

voter-us-elections“Regardless of what happens in the courts, Wisconsin can still right this wrong. So far 39 of 72 Wisconsin counties have passed resolutions in support of a nonpartisan redistricting process. Lawmakers in the Wisconsin Capitol need to be accountable to voters and support legislation that will take the power of map drawing out of partisan control and give it to an independent body, with plenty of public input, in the interest of fairness and democracy. Wisconsin voters are demanding this reform and the League of Women Voters will continue to advocate for a nonpartisan redistricting process,” said Erin Grunze, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin.
