Wisconsin Legislative Redistricting

In Wisconsin, responsibility for redrawing legislative and congressional district lines rests with the legislature.  The legislature is required to redraw legislative and congressional districts every ten years based upon the results of the decennial federal census.

Despite changes in redistricting technology and uncertainty about judicial standards, the purpose of redistricting and the end result remain unchanged -- that is, the establishment of election districts which provide representational equality for all potential voters.

As the Wisconsin Legislature prepares for redistricting, this site will aim to provide Legislators and other interested persons with information related to redistricting in Wisconsin.
