Wisconsin deserves fair election maps. The current election maps have been ruled unconstitutional because the map "was intended to burden the representational rights of Democratic voters... by impeding their ability to translate their votes into legislative seats." (Judge Ripple writing for the majority in Whitford v Gill).
As the Fair Elections Project notes, "when elections don't really matter because the district lines determine which party will be in control, the people don't have a voice. This is contrary both to our historical tradition of fairness and the Constitutional rights of the citizens of a given state."
The effort to ensure the maps are fair is truly nonpartisan. It is vital that the legislature reflect the votes people cast Instead of allowing legislators to choose their own voters by rigging the maps, citizens must be able to select their representatives when they cast their votes.
