Evers, Kaul file motion to intervene in Wisconsin redistricting lawsuit

Evers, Kaul file motion to intervene in Wisconsin redistricting lawsuit

MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul are filing a motion in federal court, in hopes of allowing Evers to intervene in a lawsuit filed last month asking the federal court to draw the states next electoral maps.

The motion argues Wisconsin law says the governor and Legislature have a joint role in the redistricting process, meaning Evers should have the opportunity to provide input in the lawsuit.

Evers office argues the Republican-controlled Legislature has already been allowed to intervene in the case, requesting that it be dismissed outright.

I never thought I would be spending a lot of my time as governor protecting our democracy, but its clear that with continued attacks on the right to vote, misinformation around the 2020 election, and efforts to gerrymander our maps, this work has never been more important, Gov. Evers said in a statement provided by his office. I will continue to fight every day to protect the right of every eligible voter to cast their ballot, to ensure we have fair, free, and secure elections, and to have fair maps in Wisconsin."
