When elected officials are able to ignore the will of the people, folks, something’s wrong. That’s why I’m creating The People’s Maps Commission. #WISOTS pic.twitter.com/zjDzSI7WQg — Governor Tony Evers (@GovEvers) January 23, 2020

Good news for voting rights: Wisconsin voter purge is now on hold while state appeals court reviews case https://t.co/25l98O0F9J — Ari Berman (@AriBerman) January 14, 2020
By a vote of 3-3, one abstention.
First open seat in 20 years.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell obstructed nearly everything that President Obama proposed and essentially ignored the warnings that were issued about Russian meddling.
To date, 47 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties have passed resolutions demanding nonpartisan redistricting reform. Despite overwhelming support by voters, the legislature ignores calls for reform.
Am I misreading this, or is Scott Walker complaining that Democrats draw “unfair” maps because they have more supporters than Republicans do and so they can redistrict to capture seats reflecting their popularity? https://t.co/FOL3pKAYmK
An annual gathering of the state big business lobby has been a must-make stop on the campaign trail for conservative candidates for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. According to One Wisconsin Now Research Director Joanna Beilman-Dulin, the curious no-show of right-wing court candidate Brian Hagedorn looks like another sign his extremism is proving too much for even staunchly conservative organizations.
[T]he governor’s executive order directs the Department of Transportation to develop and implement a plan for expanding accessibility to DOT facilities that provide citizens of Wisconsin with identification required to vote.“The cornerstone of American democracy is the right of the people to choose their representatives,” Gov. Evers said. “Through my budget proposal that calls for automatic voter registration, and through actions like today’s executive order, we are working to make it easier for people to obtain the identification they need to vote. I am committed to making sure every single vote counts, and that there is an opportunity for all Wisconsinites to participate in our democracy.”
MADISON, Wis. — In 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 state Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn was paid thousands of dollars and received gifts from an anti-LGBTQ hate group, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). In response to media revelations about his hate group windfall, Hagedorn said he was compensated for giving speeches while a state court judge but has refused to release copies or recordings of his remarks.
