[Ed. – Fraud? What fraud?]
Officials with the Glendale Police Department say what a worker at a farm found a number of stolen ballots in late October.
According to a statement released by police officials on their Facebook page on Nov. 3, 18 early election ballots were found underneath some concrete and rocks at a farm near 99th Avenue and Glendale by a man named Brayan Ruiz.
“He did the right thing by returning the ballots trying to ensure everyone who wanted to vote early still could vote,” read a portion of the post.
The ballots, according to police, were handed over to the intended recipients on Halloween by a Glendale Police officer, as well as two Attorney General’s Special Agents.
“Each resident said they were aware their early election ballots had not arrived. Some went in person to vote early, and others had not voted yet.
