Subject: Send Fair Maps Support to State Supreme Court
From: The League of Women Voters of the La Crosse Area



A request for action from the LWVWI:

You deserve to choose your elected representatives, not the other way around. Currently, Wisconsin's gerrymandered districts allow for the latter, and a petition in the Wisconsin Supreme Court threatens the possibility of this happening for another 10 years.

In June, the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) filed a petition requesting that the State Supreme Court claim jurisdiction on any future redistricting legislation, effectively limiting the review of fair maps and rushing the process altogether.

Join the LWVWI in holding the Supreme Court of Wisconsin accountable by submitting a written comment on this proposed rule change. The League recommends highlighting that this rule will harmfully politicize the Court, exclude nonpartisan groups from full participation, and limit judicial transparency. The deadline to comment is Sunday, November 22, at 5 PM.
 
Resources with background information on the WILL petition and the State Supreme Court hearing are available on the News/Action page on our website.
