California: 20,000 ballots cannot be counted in the election for Riverside District Attorney

About 20,000 ballots cannot be counted because they were received after the 8 p.m. deadline for the Registrars office to accept ballots on Election Day. The late-arriving ballots were collected at the Chicago Avenue post office in Riverside
Wednesday morning during a regularly scheduled pickup by the registrars staff. The U.S. postal service told the registrars staff that the ballots had arrived at the post office about 3:00 a.m. Wednesday.

By law, ballots not in the possession of the registrar by the time polls close at 8:00 p.m. on election day cannot be counted.

Dunmore is arranging to meet with postal officials to ensure that ballots reach the registrars office as quickly as possible
in future elections.

I know this isn't as sexy as the SC Dem Primary but its a serious problem and
we have the proof right in front of us on this one.

It is not ok that these votes won't be counted. It is also NOT ok that some voters in Palm Beach are
reporting that while their mail ballots are approved but haven't been counted yet,the winner has already been declared.


That sux.
their ballots ha
