League of Women Voters tackle gerrymandering

The drawing of fair legislative district maps has become a key issue for the League of Women Voters.  In Wisconsin, the majority party has the privilege of redrawing voting district maps after every census.  League President Linda Reinhardt says the current method allows elected officials to pick their voters, rather than the other way around.  Reinhardt says this means many legislative seats are secure, and those representatives don’t need to listen to the opposing party or even constituents.  Reinhardt says volunteers will be leaving Fair Maps information on residents’ doors this Thursday to better educate the public about the problem.
