Dozens of mail-in ballots sitting in Miami distribution center: report
The Hill ^ | 11/09/18 | Justin Wise

Dozens of boxes filled with mail-in ballots are sitting inside a Miami-area mail distribution center, according to photos obtained by The Miami New Times.

The news outlet noted that the distribution center where the ballots are located is the same one that was evacuated in October after a mail bomb reached the facility.

The news about the ballots comes the same day Miami-Dade County announced it finished counting votes for the midterm elections, which includes hotly-contested Senate and gubernatorial races that have yet to be called.

Two unnamed sources alleged to The New Times that hundreds or thousands of ballots may still be in the distribution center.

A spokesperson for the Elections Department told the news outlet that it was aware of the development. Though the spokesperson added that any ballots not delivered to the Miami-Dade Elections Department by 7 p.m. on Election Day would not be counted.

"We do our best to educate voters that, if you’re voting vote-by-mail, then your ballot had to be at the Elections Department by Tuesday, November 6," she said. "Not everybody mailed back in time."

A spokesperson for the department did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill on Friday.

A local CBS reporter tweeted Friday evening that USPS "has no information to suggest any ballots were not properly handled and provided to local election officials."

The news regarding the ballots comes as election officials in Florida face scrutiny over tight gubernatorial and Senate races.

Gov. Rick Scott (R) leads Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) in their Senate race, while former Rep. Ron DeSantis (R) has a close lead over Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum.

Scott on Thursday filed a lawsuit against election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties, alleging that they withheld crucial information about how many people had voted in their counties and how many ballots they have left to count.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) announced on Friday that it has not launched any investigations because it has received no credible allegations of voter fraud.

Guess that’s where the trucks full of GOP votes went to stash their loads.

“Maybe” “hundreds” doesn’t sound particularly relevant, especially since they wouldn’t 100% for Nelson/Gillum.

Doesn’t matter. They don’t count. Just as if they got lost in the mail. That’s a risk you take by voting via mail. Oh, by the way VBM in Florida trends GOP, while the in person early vote trends RAT.

America is finished.

If the GOP doesn't fight back, they are in on it and we've been had. But America would not be not finished yet - only the GOP.

“That’s a risk you take by voting via mail.”

I imagine there might be a circumstance where I’d vote by mail, but it would have to be extreme. Too many opportunities for monkey business.

I imagine these were left intentionally sitting on the dock of the bay while other not so legitimate ballots are coming in by the banana boat load and added to the count down to Nelson and Guilam.

They won’t add these because they missed the deadline but they add and count the others that missed the deadline.

That’s OK. the closer they make it, they can then peel off GOP RINOs on crucial votes. The Democrats play the long game. Their entire lives revolve around government machinations.

I worked in a military mail facility in the Middle East after the 2004 election. The number of military ballots coming in months after the election was disgusting. The states often send the ballots so late that there’s no way to make the cutoffs. Our troops are regularly disenfranchised due to mail—with a disproportionate number of late ballots coming from blue states.

The voter fraud makes this so much worse. Legitimate ballots are not counted, while illegals and dead people get to vote even after the elections. I’m disgusted with Florida and the constant felonious shenanigans. It’s an embarrassment to the good people who live here and an insult to those who risk their lives to provide that very franchise.
