The People's Maps Commission

Voting is a fundamental right—our democracy is strongest when everyone is allowed to participate in free, open, and fair elections.

We live in a representative democracy which means people should get to choose their elected officials, not the other way around. Over the last few years, 51 Wisconsin counties, representing almost 80-percent of the people of Wisconsin have passed resolutions or referenda supporting nonpartisan redistricting in our state.

My opponent does not support non-partisan redistricting. Unfortunately, he and the other twelve Republican members of the Joint Finance Committee removed non-partisan redistricting reform from Governor Evers’ 2019-2021 biennium budget proposal.

I support an independent process to draw legislative district maps to ensure that the next redistricting process results in fair maps for the next decade.

Governor Evers' newly-announced People’s Maps Commission with listen to citizens from every Congressional district, and use the 2020 census data to redraw maps that fairly and accurately represent our state.
