|Madison, Wis. — On September 30, 2021, the People’s Maps Commission released nine preliminary voting maps for public input. The drafts were unveiled as part of a virtual informational hearing livestreamed and recorded on the Wisconsin Department of Administration YouTube channel and Wisconsin Eye.
“Throughout this past year, we have done our part to make sure that the entire PMC process is transparent and that the public has a voice,” said PMC Chair Christopher Ford. “There are many criteria that we’ve had to consider along the way, and I know that because of our open and trustworthy approach, the final product will be one that all Wisconsin voters can be proud of.”
|Members of the public are encouraged to submit feedback and suggestions through the PMC public comment portal, which will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, October 7.
The Commission is currently working to incorporate incoming feedback and plans to release additional drafts in the coming weeks.
Wisconsin voters will then have another opportunity to provide input, as the PMC works to finalize the year-long process and deliver a final set of assembly, senate, and congressional maps to the legislature and Governor Evers for consideration.
