Two Oak Creek Polling Places Will Change

The city is moving polling places at Carollton and Meadowview after having issues with space and accessibility.

Amid issues with space and accessibility, residents in two Oak Creek aldermanic districts will vote in different places the next time they go to the polls.

Voters who cast ballots at (4th District) will now vote at , while those who normally go to will vote at (5th District).

City officials worked with the Oak Creek-Franklin School District to find alternative sites. In addition to accessibility and space issues, traffic has also been a concern, Superintendent Sara Burmeister said in a letter to council members.

The city will mail postcards to all affected residents informing them of the change. It takes effect in time for the next election on Aug. 14, when the U.S. Senate primary will be among the races on the ballot.

The Common Council on Tuesday unanimously approved moving the polling places.

Should have included this in there for reference...2,842 people voted for governor at both Carollton and Meadowview. That's quite a few people going through the doors. (and also pretty crazy that it was the exact same number at the two places)

Yes it is crazy that we would accept it as chance. This shows how elections are rigged just like wrestling ;) .

Sounds like whining barret supporter above. I think Mark's point was simply a coincedence.
