California’s Republican Party Told To Remove Its Unofficial Vote-By-Mail Collection Boxes | HuffPost

California’s attorney general and secretary of state told Republicans on Monday to knock it off after election officials reported that the state party had been breaking the law by placing makeshift, unauthorized ballot dropoff boxes around the state and falsely labeling them “official.”

Following reports of the mysterious ballot collection boxes on Sunday, the chief of California’s elections division released a statement saying “the use of unauthorized, non-official vote-by-mail ballot drop boxes does not comply with state law governing ballot collection activities.”

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Secretary of State Alex Padilla said Monday that they have sent cease-and-desist letters to the state Republican Party and county Republican organizations to immediately remove the fake drop boxes in Los Angeles, Orange and Fresno counties.
