Partisan Gerrymandering & Voter Suppression in Wisconsin

Description

Join the Madison Public Library Foundation for Partisan Gerrymandering & Voter Suppression in Wisconsin, an online lunchtime workshop, on Tuesday, February 23. The speaker will be Douglas M. Poland, a partner at Stafford Rosenbaum LLP and co-chair of the firm’s Election & Political Law Team. Poland will explain how partisan gerrymandering dilutes the power (and therefore suppresses votes) of Wisconsin voters, and why it is such a severe threat to representative democracy in Wisconsin, regardless of which political party employs it to gain and hold political power. He will also address other forms of voter suppression in Wisconsin that have effectively prevented hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin voters from expressing their choices at the ballot box.

This free event, which will be moderated by Madison estate planning attorney and foundation board member Jennifer Hannon, begins at noon and will take place on Zoom. Advance registration is required.
