Project Veritas on Saturday night released video of Bucks County, Pennsylvania Board of Elections Director Tom Freitag confirming spoiled ballots were illegally handled and destroyed.
A ballot is considered “spoiled” if an election official with authority determines it is invalid.
A ballot may be spoiled if it is damaged and unable to go through a scanning machine, if it is blank or if more choices are marked than permitted (overvoting).
Spoiled ballots are not included in the vote count.
Poll workers in Bucks County were throwing spoiled ballots in the garbage rather than preserving them for three years.
“The poll worker should not have thrown it in the garbage,” PA Board of Elections Director Tom Freitag confirmed.
“Whoever was the judge of elections, didn’t do it correctly.” he said.
