California disputed ballot boxes removed, arguing continues

Source: AP

The state Republican Party has removed their unstaffed, unofficial ballot drop boxes that state officials deemed illegal, California’s secretary of state said Friday, and subpoenas are being issued to get more information about them as the state attorney general looks into possible election law violations.

Republicans confirmed they had yanked boxes that were improperly labeled “official" but say they will continue to use dozens of other boxes without the labels that have been sent to various counties.

The back-and-forth comes after a weeklong controversy over the GOP's ballot collection in California and as votes are already pouring in to county offices in what's expected to be a very high turnout for the Nov. election.

Last weekend, California election officials said they learned Republicans had been using their own drop boxes to collect ballots from voters at churches, political offices and some businesses in Los Angeles, Orange and Fresno counties, which all have hotly contested congressional races.

2. It was pointed out that "No one would put their ballot in that box"

If there are dozens of these boxes and just a few harried, confused, voters that alone is bad.

exact legal ramifications

6. This, and then Trump telling California "What have you got to lose?!"

Leads me to believe the GOP and Putin have something planned to give California to Trump.
Trump always announces what underhanded activity the GOP is doing.

7. These fake drop boxes violate California Elections Code section 18575.

That's a felony punishable by up to 4 years in jail.


Lock them up!
