How Wisconsin's Supreme Court election could affect voting lines

View descriptionShare

Common Cause Wisconsin executive director Jay Heck joins to discuss the upcoming Wisconsin Supreme Court race and how that could affect Wisconsin voting lines that were just drawn last year. The state Supreme Court ruled on those redrawn lines and could do so again when a new justice is elected — one that could potentially swing the court from, basically, Republican to Democrat. Wisconsin is often referred to as having the most rigged voting districts in the country. We also talked, quick about the same dilemma in Illinois, only the gerrymander is rigged the other way, as well as the solution to all this coming out of Iowa — a state that is completely controlled by Republicans. Common Cause Wisconsin is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to "been working to "hold power accountable through lobbying, litigation, and grassroots organizing." Before that conversation, however, WIZM’s Brad Williams pops in to talk quick about some of the things happening in La Crosse city and county government — including added funding for EV busses and inclusive coordinator hires — or potential hires.
