The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Clarke v Wisconsin Elections Commission, a significant voting rights case challenging heavily gerrymandered state legislative maps. Republicans have consistently won a majority of seats with less than 50% of the statewide vote. A ruling against the maps could lead to a narrower Republican majority, potentially reshaping policymaking. Challengers argue the maps violate the state constitution, and a decision is expected before March 15, 2024.
