CALIFORNIA−On November 4, a passerby documented some election officials collecting ballots in Reseda, California which is a city located in the San Fernando Valley.
Video footage indicates that this was a collection site for ballots. The individual taking the video was asking questions as she documented their actions. There were two officials collecting the ballots at the time. They were working in haste and answering very little.

She was asking about the ballots, indicating that the votes were counted so quickly. “Because these are mail-in ballots,” the first official replied. When asked if he was allowed to do that, and where were they taking them, he answered, flashing his badge and relayed that he was taking them to “the election center.” “Is that in the Government building?” she asked. “L.A. County,” man number one replied.
The second man also had a badge and was more concerned with the woman videoing the whole ballot pick up. He asked her to stay 6 feet away and reminded her that she was not even wearing a mask.
The woman kept her distance letting the election workers know that she was just documenting it.
