A woman walking her dog made a shocking discovery.
Fox 11 Los Angeles has reported that a woman walking her dog in East Hollywood last weekend found a box with over 100 mail-in ballots from the 2020 election.
The ballots were found by Christina Repaci and she was quoted saying “I turned the corner and I just saw this box of envelopes, and it was a USPS box. I picked some envelopes up and I saw they were ballots”.
Repaci then contacted the police but the police refused to do anything about it and instead turned Repaci to the USPS.

Fox News 11 News, had more on the story:
The Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office and the United States Postal Service are investigating after 104 ballots were found unopened on the sidewalk in East Hollywood.
The ballots were found by Christina Repaci, who was walking her dog Saturday evening.
“I turned the corner and I just saw this box of envelopes, and it was a USPS box. I picked some envelopes up and I saw they were ballots,” said Repaci.
Repaci said she took them home for safekeeping while trying to figure out what to do next. She sent videos of the ballots to popular social media accounts to share the content and ask for guidance on next steps. Repaci said she called several politicians and the LA County Sheriff’s Department.
“I actually called the Sheriff’s Department. I couldn’t get through, so I emailed them,” she said. “I got an email back from a deputy basically in so many words saying it wasn’t their problem, and to contact the USPS.”
Repaci said after much back and forth, the LA County Registrar’s Office got in contact with her about picking up the ballots. Registrar Dean Logan personally drove to pick up the ballots.

The Daily Wire got the scoop too:
A Los Angeles woman recently found a box of approximately 104 mail-in ballots lying on a sidewalk while walking her dog, but county officials say that foul play shouldn’t be suspected in the strange discovery.
Christina Repaci was walking in East Hollywood over the weekend when she noticed a box of unopened ballots. She attempted to alert the sheriff’s office, but was reportedly told by authorities to get in touch with the postal service instead.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office confirmed to The Daily Wire that the ballots were for California’s upcoming primary election on June 7. Under a new state law, every registered voter in California will receive mail-in ballots for that election.
“I turned the corner and I just saw this box of envelopes, and it was a USPS box,” Repaci told Fox 11. “I picked some envelopes up and I saw they were ballot.”I actually called the Sheriff’s Department,” Repacci explained. “I couldn’t get through, so I emailed them.”
