For some reason, there was a lot of unofficial drop off boxes popping up all over Orange County, California.
Nobody really knows who is responsible for spreading the drop-off boxes, but the Orange County election officials confiscated them immediately.
Only county elections officials can oversee ballot drop boxes, choosing the number, location, hours of operation and other details. County registrars are charged with making sure every box follows strict state guidelines for security, including making sure they can’t be tampered with and tracing the chain of custody of all ballots.
“Operating unofficial ballot drop boxes – especially those misrepresented as official drop boxes – is not just misleading to voters, it’s a violation of state law,” Padilla said, with a felony conviction carrying a prison sentence of two to four years.
Reports came out Saturday night about a metal box in front of Freedom’s Way Baptist Church in Castaic that had a sign matching the one on the Orange County box. The church posted on social media that the box was “approved and brought by the GOP.” The post said church officials don’t have a key to the box and that GOP officials picks up the ballots. A pastor for the church didn’t respond to a request for comment.
This is just asking for fraud to happen and this is why we want to avoid this mass mail-in voting system that the Democrats are just dying to put into action. They know they can rig the system that way. We've already seen it up close and personal with Ilhan Omar's little racket that she's running up in Minnesota which was caught on video.
The election needs to be as transparent and as straight forward as possible. The fewer hands that are involved the safer the vote will be and the more likely it will be counted properly.
