Program on Impartial Redistricting at Viterbo Wednesday

The League of Women Voters of the La Crosse Area, Driftless Voter Coalition, Vernon Friends of Fair Maps, Fair Elections Project, and Wisconsin Democracy Campaign will host a Fair Maps Speaker Panel at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 in the Viterbo School of Nursing Building room 196.

The event is in support of an advisory referendum on the April 2 ballot in La Crosse and Vernon Counties to gauge voter sentiment on establishing an impartial process for drawing Wisconsin’s state and congressional districts after the 2020 census. Speakers will be Matt Rothschild, executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign; Erin Grunze, executive director of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin; and Tara Johnson, La Crosse County Board Chair, 29th District. Voters in six Wisconsin counties have already passed the “Fair Maps” nonpartisan redistricting referendum by an overwhelming margin.

The event is free and open to the public.
