This forum is an educational opportunity for Wisconsin voters to learn about the process for redrawing state election maps every 10 years. Attendees will be encouraged to register to vote and express informed opinions about the redistricting process to their legislators. The presenters, both former WI State legislators, will explain the process of re-drawing election maps every 10 years after a national census; the impact and cost of this redistricting process; gerrymandering; and proposed alternatives for drawing election maps to decrease partisan bias. There will be time for questions from the audience. The forum is free and open to the public.
