No worries, voting by mail is incredibly secure. If you doubt that, you’ll be deplatformed. So pay no attention to this stray box of mail-in ballots.
– The Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office and the United States Postal Service are investigating after 104 ballots were found unopened on the sidewalk in East Hollywood.
The ballots were found by Christina Repaci, who was walking her dog Saturday evening.
That’s one box. Where are the others? How many were there in total?
I turned the corner and I just saw this box of envelopes, and it was a USPS box. I picked some envelopes up and I saw they were ballots, said Repaci.
Repaci said she took them home for safekeeping while trying to figure out what to do next. She sent videos of the ballots to popular social media accounts to share the content and ask for guidance on next steps. Repaci said she called several politicians and the LA County Sheriff’s Department.
I actually called the Sheriff’s Department. I couldn’t get through, so I emailed them, she said. I got an email back from a deputy basically in so many words saying it wasn’t their problem, and to contact the USPS.
The LA County Registrar’s Office assures us that there’s no need to worry. Voting by mail is absolutely safe.
Early signs indicate that this was an incident of mail theft and not a directed attempt at disrupting the election. We are cooperating with the United States Postal Service and law enforcement to investigate.
Security protocols such as signature verification are in place to protect against any misuse or wrongdoing of Vote by Mail ballots.
Ah yes, signature verification.
Mail theft involves stealing items that have value. Why would someone steal ballots unless they were doing so on behalf of a political campaign?
