A U.S. Postal Service official is investigating a video shared by the Democratic leader of the House of Representatives in Florida. The video showed that he was talking about piles of unsorted mail at the Miami-Dade Post Office, which raised concerns about not counting valid votes.
The Democratic leader of the House of Representatives, Kionne McGhee, tweeted a video “about postal workers” on Friday. The video shows mail in a large number of trash bins at the Princeton Post Office on 250th Street Southwest of Homestead. NBC 6 has not verified the validity of the video.
McGee said that the person who sent him the video said that the mailed ballot was in the trash can and the mail had been at the post office for more than a week.
“I’m shocked and disappointed. I’m angry at what I saw in the video. It’s incredible that these votes are being put in boxes day after day, which may prevent people from expressing themselves in democracy. Voice,”
McGee later shared a video of a cruise patrol car at the post office on Friday afternoon.
Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle (Katherine Fernandez Rundle) said she requested that all postal distribution centers be audited and all remaining ballots sent to the Election Department immediately.
USPS told NBC 6 that they are investigating the matter. The Miami-Dade Election Department said they are also investigating and contacting the USPS confirmation letter.
The election department told the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC): “And we are sure that the ballots from this post office will be delivered in time.”
In Florida, whenever it is postmarked, the county election office must receive the ballot in the mail by 7 pm on election day.
