The For the People Act is a once-in-a-generation package of proven reforms that would:
– Expand and protect voting rights and access to the ballot;
– Put ordinary Americans ahead of Big Money donors;
– End gerrymandering so that electoral districts are fairly drawn; and
– Clean up government and hold elected officials to the highest ethical standards.
People Powered FAIR MAPS
The LWV supports the establishment of an independent commission or designation of an independent agency to be responsible for the development of a legislative and Congressional redistricting plan.
Congressional districts and government legislative bodies should be apportioned substantially on population. We oppose partisan and racial gerrymandering that distorts and undermines representative democracy by allowing officials to select their voters rather than voters to elect their officials.
For the People Act
The League of Women Voters supports the For the People Act, the Senate companion bill to H.R. 1 that passed the U.S. House of Representatives on March 8. This bill will modernize our election system, reform redistricting, and improve transparency in our elections. Contact your senator and let them know you want to protect our elections.
Volunteer Election Observers Needed
We need your help. LWVWI is recruiting volunteers from across the state to serve as election observers during elections. Volunteer election observers help ensure we have a fair election by watching for signs of voter disenfranchisement and intimidation and by monitoring the way Wisconsin’s election laws and procedures are being applied. Even if you only have a couple of hours on Election Day, you can still make a difference.
You don’t need to be a League member to volunteer. Sign up to be an election observer today!
