Supreme Court deals blow to redistricting hopes

Redistricting proponents were dealt a blow Thursday when the United States Supreme Court ruled  5-4 that district maps drawn in Republican-held North Carolina and Democratic-controlled Maryland were constitutional. According to the USA Today, Chief Justice John Roberts said in his majority opinion that federal courts should not intervene to block partisan gerrymandering. Common Cause Wisconsin Executive Director Jay Heck says partisan gerrymandering goes against what many Wisconsinites voted for in recent years.

Heck encourages voters to contact their legislators at the state level to adopt a fair maps process where a non-partisan review board draws the district lines similar to what is being done currently in places like Iowa.
