More than 100 absentee ballots were found in a dumpster by a contractor in Jefferson County, KY, it was reported yesterday. The 112 ballots were undelivered, unopened and had not yet been filled out.
Special agents from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of the Inspector General said they also found two political fliers in the course of their investigation.
“When the investigation is concluded, the case will be presented for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” Special Agent Scott Balfour said in a statement.
Nore Ghibaudy, a spokesman for the Jefferson County clerk’s office, said voters who had not received absentee ballots by Oct. 28 can vote in person at any polling site, so long as they sign an affidavit stating that they had not received a ballot by mail.
