Klamath Falls ballot drop box broken into

Klamath Falls, Ore. — If you cast a ballot at the Klamath Basin Senior Center over the weekend, you’ll want to call the county clerk.

A drop box at the senior center was broken into over the weekend, and ballots were removed. A large number of ballots were later found in a dumpster of a nearby business.

If you used the drop site Saturday or Sunday, the clerk wants to hear from you.

“We would like them to call our office to see if they were the ballots, if we retrieved their ballots this morning, and if not, we can issue a replacement ballot to them here at our office,” said Klamath County Clerk Linda Smith.

The clerk isn’t saying just how many ballots were recovered, or exactly where they were found.
