STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO MOCK BALLOT DROP BOX LEFT IN BRISTOL BOROUGH HALL

On Tuesday afternoon I was contacted by concerned citizens about the existence of a mock ballot drop box that was placed in Bristol Borough Hall, and which had accumulated six apparent absentee votes which were deposited inside of it.  That box and those miscast votes have since been confiscated by the Board of Elections.  

After consulting with the Chair of the Board of Elections, and after consideration of the facts, I have concluded at this time that the person responsible for placing the mock ballot drop box did not intend to commit election fraud by their actions and was not acting at the direction of any governmental agency or official to commit election fraud.  Nevertheless, at least six voters were misled into depositing their votes into this mock drop box by that person’s misguided actions.  

These concerned citizens were right to contact me as District Attorney, as well as to contact the Board of Elections.  While I hope and expect that our upcoming election will be free from fraud, we must all be vigilant to protect the integrity of our elections.  If anyone suspects or has any information regarding fraud in this current election, please contact the Bucks County District Attorney's Office at 215-348-6344, or on the web at Bucksda.org.
