Poland, a partner at Stafford Rosenbaum LLP and co-chair of the firm's Election & Political Law Team. Hosted by the Madison Public Library Foundation as part of its ongoing Educational Series. Poland will discuss: how Wisconsin legislative and congressional districts' geographical boundaries can be manipulated to help one political party win or maintain control; why partisan gerrymandering dilutes the power of Wisconsin voters, ultimately suppressing their votes; other examples of voter suppression; and gerrymandering's threat to representative democracy in Wisconsin, regardless of which political party uses it to gain and retain power. To register and receive Zoom login details, visit: https://mplfoundation.org/event/partisan-gerrymandering-voter-suppression-in-wisconsin/
