That said, the League of Women Voters continues to work towards our mission goals and will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

People’s Maps Public Hearing Featuring the 7th Congressional District
The Members of the People’s Maps Commission will host a series of public hearings across Wisconsin to hear directly from experts and the public on redistricting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission is conducting all hearings virtually, but may reassess this decision at a later point. There will be at least one hearing for each of Wisconsin’s congressional districts. Members of the public are encouraged to provide testimony at public hearings by registering to testify. Written public comments are also welcome at any time during the public hearing process. We encourage members of the public to submit written comments in advance of their congressional district’s public hearing.
