Redistricting 2024: state Assembly districts

by | Apr 1, 2024 | Election, Legislative Update Blog, State Issue

With new state legislative maps getting signed into law and the end of the 2023-24 legislative floor session, lawmakers across the state are turning their eyes to the coming election season. New maps bring many changes, including possible changes to longstanding relationships you might have built with your state representatives. The WASB wants to ensure that school leaders have the resources they need to stay up to date on the changes coming to the Wisconsin State Legislature, and how your advocacy efforts could be affected.

Below we look at the districts up for reelection in Nov. 2024 and track what legislators have made announcements about whether they intend to seek reelection, retire, move to run in a different district or for another office, etc. This Fall will see the election of all 99 state Assembly districts. Assembly district maps 2022 and 2024 can be found and compared HERE.

The following details will be updated as new announcements of legislators’ future plans emerge. The below information was compiled using the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, WisPolitics, the Wheeler Report and the Marquette Law Poll. If you know of a legislator who has made an announcement that we have not included, please contact David Martin.

NOTE – Predicted electoral margins were created by Marquette Law School using “top of the ticket” data from the 2022 election and is being provided for information only. The WASB is strictly nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates nor make political contributions. However, this is the type of data that legislators could be using when making decisions about their 2024 election plans and might provide some background /context to those decisions.
