SLAY THE DRAGON follows everyday people, outraged by what they see as an attack on the core democratic principle that every person’s vote should count equally. This election year, we’re joining together with grassroots partners to put an end to gerrymandering. Because this issue impacts each state differently, we’ve created a map to help you navigate how gerrymandering affects your state and community. SLAY THE DRAGON arrives on demand April 3.

Wyoming

Process

Wyoming's state legislative and congressional district lines are drawn by the Legislature as an ordinary statute, and are subject to the Governor's veto. The Legislature can override vetoes with a two-thirds vote in each chamber. Wyoming has only one at-large Congressional district.

In addition to the federal requirements of one person, one vote and the Voting Rights Act, Wyoming law requires that state legislative districts be compact, contiguous, preserve political subdivisions, and preserve communities of interest.

Issues

  • Republicans currently have supermajorities in both chambers of the Wyoming legislature, meaning they could override a reformist governor's veto.

  • Wyoming has a ballot initiative process.

  • In 2020, the entire Wyoming House and half of the Wyoming Senate will be up for re-election.

Actions

In 2020, support legislative candidate who will push for fair districts.

  • Advocate for an independent citizens' redistricting commission.

  • Write to your local news organization in support of the advisory commission. Make noise!

In 2021, use public input to persuade the Legislature to draw fair districts and to identify communities of interest.

  • Obtain Wyoming redistricting data from OpenPrecincts.

  • Use software tools such as Dave's Redistricting App and Districtr to draw district maps showing either (a) what a fair map would look like, or (b) where the community you believe should be better represented is located.
