Common Cause Wisconsin

Urges You to Take Action!

Sign our online petition urging State Legislators to reform our current partisan redistricting process:

And then:

1.   Contact both your State Senator and your State Representative and demand they support redistricting reform legislation to take the drawing of state legislative and congressional districts out of the hands of partisan legislators and entrust that task to the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau. This is what they do in Iowa and it is respected and trusted by everyone. Reform organizations and pro-reform legislators are united in support of the “Iowa Model.” Scroll below for instructions on how to find your legislators' contact information.

2.   Contact State Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos in support of nonpartisan redistricting reform and demand that they schedule a public hearing and vote on reform legislation.

    (608) 266-2056

    (608) 266-9171

3.   Contact both your State Senator and State Representative along with LeMahieu and Vos to demand that no taxpayer money be used to pay legal fees to defend gerrymandered maps as they did in 2011 when they created the most partisan, secretive, costly (to taxpayers) and voter-unfriendly redistricting process of legislative and congressional districts in our state's history.

4.   Vote! Make sure you have one of the required forms of photo ID in order to vote in Wisconsin and take responsibility for 10 friends/family members to ensure that they have what is required to vote as well.

Contact Your Legislators Directly about other Democracy Issues

Sometimes, the best way you can be involved is to be aware of what's going on at the Capitol and to stay in touch with those who represent you.

Write to them, call them, tell them what you think!

And don't forget to tell them when they do something good! Legislators often say that the best way to get through to them is with a personal letter. Phone calls are also good. Email is generally not effective, because there are so many coming in.

For addresses, phone numbers and other contact information, go to the Wisconsin State Legislature homepage, scroll down to enter your address and click "Find my Legislators."

Who are they?

The easiest way to find out who your legislators are is to follow the link below to the Wisconsin Legislature website.

Just click on your home area on the Wisconsin map, and the site will tell you who your state representatives are.

It's that easy.

Thinking of getting more involved with Common Cause in Wisconsin?

We have many ways to get involved and would be grateful for any help you're able to give. Please see email Erin at egrunze@commoncause.org.

Redistricting in Wisconsin can be fairer and better. But only if we, the people, demand that it happens and make it so.
