2021 Redistricting

Under Section 59.10 of the Wisconsin Statutes, county governments in Wisconsin must create new county board district boundaries every ten years, immediately after the federal census.  In 2016, the Dane County Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance Amendment 2016-OA 32, which created a nonpartisan independent citizen Redistricting Commission.  The Commission is tasked with submitting at least three draft supervisory district maps to the County Board by deadlines under state law.  Over the course of 2021 and 2022, the Redistricting Commission will oversee a map drafting process that:

  • Is independent, impartial and fair;
  • Is accountable and transparent;
  • Meets all state statutory deadlines;
  • Fully engages the public.
