California resident Jerry Mosna found 83 unused 2016 voter ballots at his home over the weekend — each ballot had a different name but were all addressed to his neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment — causing concern and serious suspicion of voter fraud.
“I think this is spooky,” Mosna said, according to Fox News. “All the different names, none we recognize, all at one address.”

Mosna and his wife Madalena attempted to turn the ballots over to Los Angeles police, but they eventually found their way to the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office.
“We are carefully reviewing our records and gathering information to fully identify what took place,” the office of the Registrar reportedly said in a statement. “Our preliminary assessment is that this appears to be an isolated situation related to a system error that occurred causing duplicate ballots to be issued to an address entered for a single voter. We are working directly with the system vendor to ensure the issue is addressed and to identify any similar occurrences.”
Brenda Duran, a spokeswoman for the office of the Registrar, said the U.S. Postal Service “has indicated that they returned all of the improperly addressed ballots to our office.”
U.S. Postal Service spokesman Richard Maher said, according to Fox News, that his office has seen “relatively few” similar incidences like the one Mr. and Mrs. Mosna reported.
