Miami-Dade State Attorney Calls For Postal Audit After Undelivered Ballots Found Inside Post Office

MIAMI (CBSMiami) - Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle is calling for a postal audit of all county postal distribution centers after video emerges showing undelivered vote-by-mail ballots.

On Saturday, the Office of the Inspector General special agents confirmed to CBS4 the presence of delayed mail and subsequently located approximately 48 pieces of election mail" from the US Postal Service.

On Friday afternoon State Representative Keonne McGhee sounded the alarm about vote-by-mail ballots found stacked in a room inside at US Postal Office at the Princeton Distribution Center in Southwest Miami-Dade.

McGhee posted video on social media.

"They have been understaffed, underfunded, which has created a quagmire effect. That has caused residents within this area not to have received their mail," State Rep Mcghee said.

The state house member is running to be a Miami-Dade Commissioner. His opponent, Elvis Maldonado, is also concerned.

"My question is, is that mail backed up? Is it supposed to be going out? That's why I came out here to see what's going on," Maldonado said.
