Sacramento County elections officials are investigating how hundreds of county voters’ guides ended up tossed into Elk Grove neighborhood recycling bins.
Nearly 800 of the county voter information guides were discovered Tuesday inside bins in Elk Grove neighborhoods, elections officials said Thursday. County elections officials received word of the bundles on Tuesday and notified U.S. Postal Service officials. Roughly 780 guides were rounded up and remailed Wednesday to their intended addresses, elections spokeswoman Janna Haynes said Thursday in a statement.
No ballots were involved in the incident, but Haynes said county voting officials are “working closely with local, state and federal officials to investigate how this incident occurred and are working to prevent any future incidents.”
