Wisconsin’s new political map could be years away. Lawmakers in Madison yesterday listened to a plan to delay the state’s redistricting process til February of next year.
That means the new map would not be in place until the election of 2023. Democrats and liberal groups say the delay will dilute the votes of people in growing communities. Republican lawmakers and many county leaders say delaying the new map is the ‘least-worst’ option, and it may avoid more lawsuits down the line.
