Nearly 300 Absentee Ballots from 2020 Election Found

Nearly 300 absentee ballots from the 2020 election were found in a Michigan county storage unit, according to a township supervisor.

The ballots were discovered in a storage unit in Genesee County, which encompasses the city of Flint, Mich., and Thetford Township.

The discovery was made by Thetford Township Supervisor Rachel Stanke through a Freedom of Information Act and presented Wednesday to the township board and residents, according to Michigan News Source.

In 2021, Stanke first became aware of the potential existence of the missing ballots. She initially contacted the Michigan attorney general and the secretary of state, then later told the Michigan State Police after receiving tips regarding the missing ballots and supposed “old township documents” that were discovered.

The storage unit was rented by a former township employee who stowed the box of ballots there, according to the FOIA records. Stanke said that the employee was not aware of the contents of the box.

The Michigan police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the ballots after recovering them in August 2022.

Stanke hopes that residents can trust the fairness and accuracy of elections. “That’s why I want to bring this to their attention,” she said. “And I want them to be able to make sure that their elections are run fairly and smoothly.”

Katie Hicks, who lost by 19 votes in her race for Thetford Township Clerk in 2020, said she cannot trust future elections.

“Now this is all coming out and … I’m kind of happy that it’s coming out because the election is right around the corner again. And it concerns me that this will take place again for 2024,” Hicks said.

    You want fairer elections?
    1. All votes have to be with proper picture ID. One can get a non-drivers license that has a picture ID, you use it for banking, hooking up utilities, getting an apartment, etc.
    2. Vote absentee at the board of elections with ID or have them do it at a bank or anywhere else that a notary can check that it is actually the person whose name is on the ballot.
    3. Voting times change EST 10A-10P, CST 9A-9P, RMT 8A-8P, PST 7A-7P. That way everyone closes at the same time and exit polls are not influencing states west of the eastern time zone by their votes.

    Ok, so they found the votes. Now tally them up and see what’s what and who is the legitimate winner. That person now takes office. End of story. It’s really not difficult.

    we all do banking! an atm machine! a picture while you are at the machine and go to a server that every one can search if their ballot is there! would stop all cheating! a picture says it all and it would be time stamped with your voting! every one has a phone! obama phone! every one has a phone today! vote and double check by phone! no way to cheat! plus the computer would check if you are a citizen of the usa or a criminal or a mars person! no way to cheat unless you make the machine to cheat! you file taxes online, do everything online! VOTING SHOULD BE ONLINE! EVEN IF YOU GO TO A VOTING PLACE! then have a way to check it on line to verify your ballot by phone or email just like banks do! the end of cheating and would take seconds to find any ones votes! PLUS YOU WOULD HAVE A WINNER IN SECONDS! THE END TO ALL CHEATING!
