Ch. 4 Note NOTE: On August 23, 2021, four Wisconsin voters filed a petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court for leave to commence an original action with the court, claiming that, following the 2020 Census, the state's legislative districts were malapportioned and no longer met the redistricting requirements of the state constitution. The court granted the petition, but stayed any further action, other than the consideration of preliminary matters, until the legislature passed a legislative reapportionment plan or until the legislature failed to pass such a plan after ample opportunity to do so. See Johnson v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, 2022 WI 14.
 On November 11, 2021, the legislature adopted Senate Bill 621, which established new legislative districts. The governor vetoed the bill seven days later. The court subsequently issued orders and an opinion establishing the criteria and process it would use in approving a legislative plan. The parties submitted their proposed plans to the court shortly thereafter. On March 3, 2022, the court approved a plan submitted by the governor. The legislature and the original plaintiffs appealed to the United States Supreme Court seeking a stay and injunctive relief. The appellants claimed that the governor's plan adopted by the state court violated the federal constitution and the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 by increasing the number of majority-black districts without following the process established by U.S. Supreme Court precedent. The U.S. Supreme Court agreed with the appellants, granted the appellants' request for a stay, and remanded the case back to the state court. See Wisconsin Legislature, et al. v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, et al., 595 U.S. (2022).
 On April 15, 2022, the Wisconsin Supreme Court issued an opinion adopting the legislative plan, 2021 Senate Bill 621, as being the plan that best complied with its order to make the least change from the plan enacted by 2011 Wisconsin Act 43 and conform to all federal and state constitutional requirements. See Johnson v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, 2022 WI 19.
 The plan approved by the state supreme court first applies to the 2022 general election. Detailed maps of the legislative districts under the plan may be found at https://legis.wisconsin.gov/ltsb/gis/maps.
 The plan described under subchapters II and III of this chapter reflects the plan enacted by 2011 Wisconsin Act 43. The court's decision in Johnson v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, 2022 WI 19, supersedes that plan. The court's decision may be found at https://www.wicourts.gov/opinions/sopinion.htm.
