State of Wisconsin

Wisconsin Redistricting Challenge (WILL)

Johnson v. Wisconsin Elections Commission

Petition filed in the Wisconsin Supreme Court by the conservative group Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) on behalf of individual voters challenging Wisconsin’s congressional and legislative district maps following the release of 2020 census data. The petitioners argue that the state’s current maps are malapportioned in violation of the constitutional principle of one person, one vote and ask the court to require that new maps are used for future elections. The suit also asks the court to intervene in the redistricting process in the event that either maps passed by the Legislature are challenged or the state government fails to enact new maps in time for the 2022 election. The Wisconsin Supreme Court granted the petition.
