The county supervisor, Scott Walker(Rep), has the responsibility to provide the ballots.
He has provided 679,000 ballots.
The Mayor, Tom Barratt (Dem), wants 938,300 ballots, and says that Walker is trying to prevent people from voting.
There are 382,000 Registered voters.
There are 423,811 people living in the city of Milwaukee who are eligible voters.
This paragraph from a newspaper article seems particularly appropriate:
The editorial cartoon from our liberal leaning paper made it look as if Scott Walker was clearly trying to prevent voters from voting.
Frankly, I think this is a load of bull. we don't need 2 ballots per eligible voter.
