It’s that Wisco disenfranchisement map-mapping the effect of Republican voterID bill. Highest voter disenfranchisement correlates with high Dem populations— see Dane County and Milwaukee County

Potential voter disenfranchisement
From Eric Compas, who admits that “Interpretation of this map requires caution for several reasons: 1) it doesn’t include all forms of ID that can be used (e.g. military IDs) for which detailed data isn’t available, 2) many drivers have licenses without a current address, 3) many drivers are not of voting age, and 4) the data are not from the same year.”
But the map is, as advertised, a visual representation of potential voter disenfranchisement in Wisconsin.

"This bill is really voter suppression"  Senator Lena Taylor of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. frm Nick Nice #wiunion

Yesterday, Democrat U.S. Congresswoman Gwen Moore held a news conference at her office to protest a State of Wisconsin voter I.D. bill. The new bill would make Wisconsin the most restrictive to voter access in the nation. 

Representative Moore says requiring voters to produce a photo I.D. or Drivers License before voting amounts to a poll tax and would adversely impact minorities, students, and the disabled. The NAACP will likely sponsor a legal challenge to the bill if it is passed.

To learn more about the bill and one organization fighting it, see Common Cause of Wisconsin

Ms. Moore serves Wisconsin’s 4th District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Congresswoman Gwen Moore’s web site.
