Survey: No Major Problems With Ballot Drop Boxes During 2020 Election [VIDEO]

An Associated Press survey of state election officials across the United States revealed no cases of fraud, vandalism, or theft that could have affected the results of the 2020 Presidential election.

Importantly, the survey found the expanded use of drop boxes for mailed ballots during the 2020 election did not lead to any widespread problems and remained safe and secure, as determined by election officials in both Republican- and Democratic-controlled states.

But despite the findings from the bipartisan survey, conspiracy theories and efforts by Republicans to eliminate or restrict ballot boxes since the 2020 election persist. This month, the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s conservative majority ruled that drop boxes are not allowed under state law and can no longer be widely used.

In response to the legislation and conspiracy theories surrounding drop boxes, the AP sent a survey in May to the top elections officials in each state seeking information about whether the boxes were tied to fraudulent votes or stolen ballots, or whether the boxes and the ballots they contained were damaged. All but five states responded to the questions.
