More than 100 blank Jefferson County absentee ballots found in dumpster

LOUISVILLE, Ky. —More than 100 absentee ballots meant for Jefferson County voters were found in a dumpster on Thursday.

Nore Ghibaudy, Jefferson County clerk spokesperson, confirmed 112 blank ballots were found in a construction dumpster. The ballots were meant for voters in the Jeffersontown area – ZIP code 40299.Advertisement

He said they were still in the plastic container used by the USPS and other mail was mixed in.

Ghibaudy said the mail was discovered by a construction worker.

Once the Postal Service had the ballots back in their possession, they were immediately delivered to voters, he said.

Ghibaudy said they did not appear to be damaged in any way and they don’t foresee any problems with those ballots.

It’s still unclear who put them there.

Special Agents with the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General said they are working to identify who is responsible for discarding the mail. Once their investigation is complete, they’ll present their case for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The deadline to request an absentee ballot in Kentucky has already passed. They must be postmarked by Nov. 3 and received by Nov. 6.
