Checks and Balances: Who Controls the Right to Vote 2023

Product ID: CA3505R2
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Co-produced with Keep Our Republic

Map it out

Moore v. Harper has been called “the 800-pound gorilla” of election law. At issue in Moore was whether the North Carolina Supreme Court has the authority to strike down a congressional map drawn by the state’s legislature. Central to the case was the “independent state legislature theory.” 

Proponents of this theory argue that the Elections Clause of Article I of the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the power to regulate federal elections and that power exempts election regulations from state judicial review. Opponents argue that sanctioning the independent state legislature theory would destabilize election administration and erode state-based voting rights. 

Examine Moore’s implications for Wisconsin at Checks and Balances: Who Controls the Right to Vote? Presenters will walk you through the facts and issues raised in Moore and discuss the parallels with congressional maps in Wisconsin.
