It is time for WIsconsin to #UnrigTheMap

Assembly Democrats are helping to lead the fight for a free and fair map.

In 2010, Wisconsin Republicans took control. They redrew Wisconsin’s Assembly district maps to their advantage. In 2012, Democrats received over 50% of votes cast for Assembly, but because of the rigged maps, Democrats won less than 40% of Assembly seats.

The federal courts have found the current Wisconsin map to be unconstitutional. But the fight continues.


We have now filed suit to ensure that every vote is treated equally

Voters are supposed to choose their elected officials, not the other way around. Assembly Democrats are honored to take part in this historic litigation to guarantee that all Wisconsinites are able to participate in our democracy. Citizens lose faith in their government when they feel like the system is rigged.
— Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz

And let the Republicans know that you want a fair map that offers equal representation to every Wisconsinite.


Open

The people of Wisconsin deserve an open process so that all voters can be heard during this important undertaking.

The unconstitutional maps that Republicans drew in 2011 were the product of a closed system that rejected input from the public and Democratic members of the legislature. We’re in federal court now, demanding that Republicans stop shutting us out of the process in order to ensure that citizens from all across Wisconsin can be a part of fixing these illegal maps.


Public

The people of Wisconsin deserve a process that is public so that all voters can be assured their voice is heard.

When the Republicans in the legislature drew their rigged maps, they swore to hide the process from the public. That’s not how a healthy democracy creates the basis of its foundation and as we begin the process of fixing the rigged system created by those secret meetings there is no reason for secrecy.


Fair

The people of Wisconsin deserve a fair process that represents all voters instead of favoring any one group over another.

At the heart of the court’s ruling was the idea that voters should choose their representatives and representatives should not be choosing their voters. The court’s ruling could not have been more clear: partisan gerrymanders cannot continue in Wisconsin and Republicans in the legislature must make this right.
