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 no later than May 31, 2021.  Over the course of 2020 and 2021, 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, including an opportunity for the public to submit maps for commission consideration
  • Includes early and ongoing communication with municipal clerks for input throughout the process.

The County Board Chair and the County Clerk will be making appointments to the Independent Citizen Redistricting Commission in the summer of 2020.  If you would like to apply to serve on this Commission, please fill out the appropriate online application form:
