MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today, joined by Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes and Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, signed Executive Order #66 creating The People’s Maps Commission. This commission will be comprised of the people of Wisconsin and will be tasked with drawing fair, impartial maps to be presented to the Legislature for consideration following the 2020 Census.
“When elected officials are able to ignore their constituents without consequences, and when they can rely on the safety of their seats rather than the quality of their work, something’s wrong, folks,” said Gov. Evers. “The people should choose their elected officials, not the other way around. And when it comes to the integrity of the process and the fairness of the maps, Wisconsin must look to the people, not politicians, to assist in drawing maps that fairly and accurately represent our state.”
