County referendums on redistricting and at two schools pass

Three referendums — two school districts and another on redistricting — all passed in Tuesday’s La Crosse County elections.

The advisory referendum asking whether the state legislature should create a nonpartisan procedure for legislative and congressional district maps passed by an overwhelming margin — 16,637-4,858.

As it stands now, the party in power draws voting maps after the census, which is coming up in 2020.

Meanwhile, school district referendums in West Salem and Holmen also passed, allowing them to exceed revenue limits — through 2024 in Holmen and through 2022 in West Salem.
