Postal inspectors in Washington, D.C. have now joined the investigation into completed ballots reportedly found down a ravine in the Santa Cruz mountains.
According to some of the people whose ballots were recovered, their ballots were delivered at the post office on Payne Avenue in west San Jose – which is now a starting point for the investigation.
Several voters said they mailed those ballots using the drive-thru mailbox at the aforementioned location because the post office lobby is closed on weekends. Now, that mail box is out of service.
Taking a closer look reveals the mailbox lock is missing.
Local post officials told NBC Bay Area they can’t comment on specifics since it is now being headed up by postal officials in Washington, D.C.
