NEWTOWN, NJ – With over 40,000 ballots rejected in the June primary mail-in ballot election, one election office in New Jersey just found 1,600 uncounted ballots laying around their office that had not been counted. The ballots, according to Sussex County law officials were found in a ‘secure area’ last Thursday. Sussex County Board of Elections Administrator Marge McCabe said all of the ballots were counted and the updated tally was sent to the state.
“Sussex County is a relatively small county and months after the election, these votes are found in a box,” said William Hayden leader of the Sussex County Tea Party. “If you extend that out to the state of New Jersey that’s 33,000 or something votes. But if you take into account our population, now you’re at 45,000.”
“45,000 votes could be gone, missing, this can change a presidential election,” Hayden said. “Vote by mail is a fraud. These weren’t even votes lost by the post office, they were lost in the election office. This is a disaster for both parties and an infringement on our freedom.”
