The following video was taken by Bev Harris of Black Box Voting.org during the recounting of votes in the New Hampshire primary election which took place recently. The"chain of custody" and secure storage of the ballots are vital to ensure an accurate recount and prevent election fraud. Watch carefully the reactions and answers given by the "election officials" to the questions asked by Bev Harris and others present.
If this was a bank storing currency for the night, would they just leave it in a room–because the whole building is secure? Or would they place it in the vault? The answer is obvious–the money would go into the vault.
So why aren’t ballots treated with the same respect, considering they are the currency of a free democracy?
