RPD Quickly Recovers Voting Materials Stolen During Vehicle Theft

With perhaps the most contentious single office election in the history of Shasta County at hand, the integrity of the vote was almost compromised Monday when ballots were stolen. A volunteer elections worker had their car broken into at their home in Redding and materials were stolen. Thanks to a neighbor and Redding Police, the materials were all recovered. County Clerk and Registrar of Voters Cathy Darling-Allen was able to confirm that the seals on the container had not been broken and the blank ballots inside were not tampered with or altered in any way. Tuesday is the special election for the potential recall of District Two Supervisor Leonard Moty. There are two questions on the ballot. The first asks if Moty should be recalled. The second asks which of four candidates should replace him in the event of a recall. There are around 21,000 registered voters in District Two, and many of them have already voted.
