U-S Attorney David Freed has released more information about the ongoing investigation into reports of potential issues with a small number of mail-in ballots at the Luzerne County Board of Elections. Since Monday, the FBI and State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Of the nine ballots that were discarded and then recovered, 7 were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump. Two of the discarded ballots had been resealed inside their appropriate envelopes by Luzerne elections staff prior to recovery by the FBI and the contents of those 2 ballots are unknown. The investigation remains active.
