County board leader wants voters to weigh in on redistricting method

Brad Williams



La Crosse County is getting on the redistricting bandwagon. 

The county board has scheduled an advisory referendum for April, to indicate local support for a change in how Wisconsin draws legislative and Congressional districts. 

Monica Kruse, the 1st vice-chair of the La Crosse County Board, says the record for passing ballot questions about redistricting is extremely good.    

The practice of letting the majority party in the Wisconsin legislature draw maps after each census is under fire, with accusations that those maps have helped Republicans keep control of the Assembly and Senate throughout this decade.          

Another census happens in April of next year around the U.S., and the results will be used to draw voting districts for Congress and state legislatures.
