Thank You Iowa County voters
Thank you to all 355 Iowa County voters who signed a petition urging the Iowa County Board of Supervisors to support a referendum on the November ballot to end gerrymandering. These signatures were collected in a two-week period and during the pandemic!
Thank you, too, to the Iowa County Board of Supervisors that passed the resolution for a referendum to create a nonpartisan procedure for the preparation of legislative and congressional district plans and maps on a 16-4 vote.
A nonpartisan procedure for drawing voting district maps after the 2020 census is the best way to assure:
Fair representation for all Wisconsin citizens
Political candidates chosen by the voters, not party leadership or big donors
Candidates must seek broad support across their districts, not just support from their base, thus reducing the polarization in our politics
