Local Ballots Must Be Destroyed As Required By State Law

Any contentions about the 2020 General Election will apparently not find evidence in Shasta County. The Board of Supervisors had requested, and budgeted for, the retention of ballots from 2020 in an apparent nod to the ever-lingering unsupported doubts among some voters questioning the integrity of the count. County Counsel Rubin Cruse researched state law concerning the the issue and found that election materials must be destroyed 22 months after an election by the Registrar of Voters, and that the law specifically prevents any official other than the Registrar from doing the Registrar’s job.
