We, the Irrelevant

Wisconsinites don't like gerrymandering

I sent a public records request to the entire WI legislature. The request was for citizen contacts related to gerrymandering, redistricting, and/or drawing fair maps received by the legislator from Jan. 18 through June 1, 2021. That time span was broken into nine 2-week periods, and the legislature was divided by senate districts into roughly equal groups.

The spreadsheet below contains the final numbers. 7 legislators never responded (red cell in Opposed column) and 2 were inadvertently omitted from the original query. Legislators reported a total of 955 contacts. 952 of those were opposed to gerrymandering, and 3 were in favor of it.
