The Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office and the United States Postal Services (USPS) are investigating the incident after Christina Repaci found 104 unopened ballots.
Repaci called the whole encounter “stressful,” and told the outlet officials were extremely difficult to get in contact with:
It was so much stress and for just one person to get back to me. What do I do here? Now if it happens to someone else, they don’t know what to do. They’ll just put them in a dumpster or throw them in the trash. I just don’t think it should have been this hard to figure out what to do with legal ballots. This is a country of freedom, and our votes should matter and something like this should never happen.
