Ho-Chunk Nation Legislature Redistricting

The Legislature has started the process of Redistricting, pursuant to Article V, Section 4 of the Ho-Chunk Nation Constitution.  Redistricting is the way the Nation changes the districts that decide who will represent tribal members in the Ho-Chunk Nation Legislature.  Every elected Representative of the Nation’s Legislature is elected from districts.  These districts divide areas and tribal members that live there into different geographic areas.  The Legislature has developed a process to decide where and how the lines will be drawn, which is based on legal criteria.  The Legislature initially selects a final proposal for new Redistricting, which will then be decided on by the eligible voters of the Ho-Chunk Nation at a Special Election in October of 2024.

The Legislature encourages tribal members to submit ideas or new Redistricting proposals to the Legislature.  Below is information that can be used to create any proposals, including maps and an overview of applicable guidelines and formula.  If you are interested in submitting a proposal to the Legislature, please send your proposal by email to:   Tribal members have a deadline of April 26, 2024 to submit such information by email or by hard copy at the Legislative Office, at the Tribal Office Building, in Black River Falls, Wisconsin.  In the past, tribal members who submitted new proposals would do so by using the maps to draw new district boundaries, for representation. Please also indicate how many districts and Legislators you propose, including how many Legislators per district,  Any proposal should include your name and contact information and indicate your tribal membership.
