East Bay ballot drop box accidentally left unlocked after service Sunday, town spokesperson says

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Danville city officials say they do not believe ballots were stolen or tampered with after a collection box was found unsecured after it was serviced.

The box is located at the Park and Ride lot near Sycamore Valley Road and Camino Ramon.

It had been worked on earlier on Sunday, but was not properly closed and locked.

The lid was left open for about an hour Sunday afternoon.

Town of Danville spokesperson said there's no evidence anyone's ballot went missing or was mishandled.

But if you dropped your ballot off and have concerns - you can contact the Contra Costa County registrar.

There is no disputing that this year's election will be different than those in the past, but it will be relying more on ballots sent through the mail, than those cast in the ballot booth.
