This week, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and officials with San Diego County’s elections office confirmed they are investigating mail-in ballots that were found scattered along a local San Diego freeway.
A local driver under the name of Brent Walters told Fox5 San Diego that he found several ballots on June 7, the same day as California’s primary elections near Route 163 and Interstate 8.
According to Walters he found the small stack, took photos, and shared his concerns with the office of San Diego County Registrar of Voters Cynthia Paes, the outlet reported.
More details of this unusual incident from FOX 5 San Diego:
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and San Diego County elections officials are investigating after a half-dozen mail-in ballots and other unrelated mail were found last week along a local freeway.
Four of the ballots were recovered by a local driver named Brent Walters. He told FOX 5 in a Facebook message that he found them June 7, the day of California’s statewide primary election, as he was fixing a flat tire on his vehicle on state Route 163 near Interstate 8 in San Diego.
Walters said he picked up a small stack and took several photos “to be able to have proof to report to someone.” His concerns then were shared with the San Diego County Registrar of Voters Cynthia Paes’ office.
In an email, Paes said they collected four unopened ballot envelopes from Walters.
According to TGP, this kind of incident is not the first time to happen:
This is not the first time something like this has happened.
In October 2020, a California man found dozens of mail-in ballots in two California trash cans in an ally.
California officially became a vote-by-mail state this year. This makes it easier for Democrats to cheat. California Governor Newsom used Covid as an excuse to mail out millions of ballots during the 2020 election.
Governor Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law in September and it went into effect on January 1, 2022. Under the new law, all voters will be mailed ballots for statewide and local elections.
