One Colorado Springs resident says he and his neighbors had mail-in ballots and other mail items stolen from their mailboxes, raising more concerns about the safety around voting by mail.
“I didn’t think much of it until I talked to a neighbor and realized ballots had been sent out on the Friday before and that everybody in the neighborhood received ballots that day,” Barry Dunlap said in an interview with KRDO.
Dunlap told the local news outlet that the U.S Postal Service told him that they located his ballot discarded miles away from his home.

“I was contacted by the U.S Postal Service and they said they found it in an out-going mail drop in the other side of town,” Dunlap said.
Another Colorado Springs resident, Dave Lundsten, said he witnessed an individual riding a bike going through his mail box.
“He just happened to come down and opened up my mailbox to look in there, and my camera caught that. He didn’t look very old. Maybe 18 or 19,” Lundsten judged.
This certainly isn’t the first case of election interference with Democrats’ massive mail-in ballot push.
Nearly 29,000 incorrect ballots were sent to voters in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, according to election board officials. WPXI reports, “New ballots are being sent out after 28,879 voters in Allegheny County received incorrect ones.”
“Elections Division officials said on Wednesday that mailing of the new, corrected ballots will be completed by Oct. 17, with most being delivered the week of Oct. 19.
The issue was the result of a ballot image mapping error by Midwest Direct, the company contracted to handle the printing, collating and mailing of ballots, officials said.”
Voting by mail has sparked concerns about voting fraud from experts and has been repeatedly highlighted by President Trump.
“The 2020 Election will be totally rigged if Mail-In Voting is allowed to take place, & everyone knows it,” the president tweeted in July. “So much time is taken talking about foreign influence, but the same people won’t even discuss Mail-In election corruption.”
