BAKER COUNTY, Ga. — Dozens of ballots could have been lost on Tuesday when a USPS car went up in flames, election officials said.
In a news conference, Deputy Secretary of State Gabriel Sterling said that a USPS car carrying was “burned to a crisp” while delivering mail in Baker County.
He also said there are 43 outstanding absentee ballots in Baker County that could have been in the mail that was burned.
The Newton Post Office has a list of packages and mail on the route.
Sterling confirmed they are trying to get photos of the mail that was being delivered to see if any of the ballots were on board, but have not yet received them.
