Vote Supression

The City of Milwaukee may be short of ballots because a Republican county executive has provided them with a couple hundred thousand fewer ballots than they received in 2000, and far less than they asked for considering the expected voter turnout.

A Republican consulting firm, funded by RNC money, has been running 'voter registration drives' which they are suspected of using as cover to tear up Democratic registration forms. DNC Chair Terry McAuliffe writes a letter to the RNC about it.

Pandagon points to a recent Krugman editorial on the subject of voter supression along with the following comments:

Does it strike anyone else that the role of Democrats is to register additional voters and get accused of fraud, and the role of Republicans is to try everything possible, legal and extralegal, to make sure those voters don't get to the polls?
