A referendum on fair voting maps was approved in 11 Wisconsin counties and three municipalities in November’s General Election.

Polling shows the vast majority of people in Wisconsin support fair maps already, with 72 percent of people in Wisconsin – representing Republicans, Democrats and Independents, saying they want a nonpartisan committee to draw voting districts.

While the referendum against gerrymandering does not change legislation, it does send a strong message to state legislators.
