Republicans are proposing to extend the current set of gerrymandered election maps. Delays with the census data have made the redistricting timeline tight, and the GOP are using that as an excuse to propose keeping rigged maps in place for another year. This bill is being fast tracked to prevent public input. A public hearing will occur Monday and the committee vote Tuesday. Read the testimony from the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign for more information.
Call your State Legislators and ask them to oppose Senate Bill 385 and Assembly Bill 369.
What to say:
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent at [ADDRESS].
I’m calling to ask my local legislators to oppose Senate Bill 385 and Assembly Bill 369 which would shift the redistricting timeline. A federal court ruled the current set of election maps an unconstitutional gerrymander. Wisconsinites deserve new, fairer maps before any more elections take place. Thank you.”
When to Call: ASAP
