Mail-in ballots from Las Vegas neighborhood found in road miles away, I-Team prompts investigation

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Questions from the I-Team to the U.S. Postal Service about mail-in ballots found on the side of the road have sparked an investigation, the agency confirmed.

Russell Layton was riding his bike through the Northwest Valley last week when he came across 10 ballots left on a road near Lone Mountain.

“It seemed really odd to me,” Layton told the I-Team. “I just happened to see a bunch of mail in the road and it happened to be mail-in ballots.” 

The ten unopened ballots were left in a bike lane, unaccompanied by other mail, Layton said.

“It was a concern and it was a bit confusing, too,” Layton said. 

The ballots have addresses on Fort Apache, Chieftain and Hammer – a neighborhood about 2 miles away from where Layton found them.

“I looked at them and noticed what they were and knew they were important and needed to be taken care of,” Layton said.  ... Read More

Those are needs, she says, the kindergartener can not meet with remote learning. 

"It's definitely a struggle because he has an IEP," Tran said... Read More

WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — The U.S. government identified two foreign actors that have taken actions to interfere with the 2020 presidential election, ranging from obtaining voter registration information to sending emails meant to intimidate American voters and sow unrest.

At a Wednesday news briefing held with little advance notice, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said they are alerting the public that Iran and Russia took "specific actions" to manipulate public opinion regarding the election, particularly on the internet.

Ratcliffe says Iran has sent “spoof emails” to damage President Trump. Additionally, Iran is distributing other content to say individuals could cast fraudulent ballots from overseas. He called the actions "desperate attempts by desperate adversaries.”... Read More
