FreedomWorks Statement in Response to California Ballot Box Arson

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to reports of ballot box arson in Baldwin Park, California, in which nearly 100 mail ballots may have been destroyed, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Democrats told Americans all summer that it’s safe to vote by mail and that the ballot box is especially secure. But now, it’s clear that voters risk disenfranchisement thanks to elected officials’ push for widespread voting by mail. This election cycle, no vote is safe from the risks of malfeasance associated with widespread voting by mail. This incident in California is a reminder that the best way to ensure that your vote is counted is to vote in person.”
