On September 15, 2021, the Kenosha County Board of Supervisors, by a split vote of 12 to 6, approved Resolution No. 54 and adopted the proposed tentative Kenosha County Supervisory District Plan.
Despite listening to an hour of public comments where numerous concerned citizens spoke against the map, 12 supervisors went against the will of their constituents.
The following day, a group of engaged citizens hired an attorney and filed a complaint against Kenosha County. These patriots believe the approved map is contrary to federal and state law for the following reasons:
The overall relative deviation of population in the Adopted Map is 12.16%. Kenosha County is bound by the “one-person, one-vote” rule established by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Pursuant to state and federal redistricting law, new Kenosha County supervisory districts must:
(a) Be substantially equal in population;
(b) Be compact;
(c) Be contiguous;
(d) Maintain communities of interest within a district;
(e) Comply with the Voting Rights Act;
(f) Preserve political subdivisions;
(g) Preserve cores of districts; and
(h) Preserve incumbents.
The supervisory districts in the Adopted Map are not substantially equal in population. The supervisory districts in the Adopted Map are not compact. The supervisory districts in the Adopted Map are not contiguous. The supervisory districts in the Adopted Map do not maintain communities of interest within a district. Upon information and belief, the supervisory districts in the Adopted Map do not comply with the Voting Rights Act. The supervisory districts in the Adopted Map split political subdivisions. The supervisory districts in the Adopted Map are vastly different than the current Kenosha County supervisory districts adopted in 2011.
