Six Richmond, Virginia post offices reported that some of their mailboxes that contained mail-in-ballots appeared to have been tampered with Monday morning, according to local reports.

Moreover, the controversy over the safety of mail-in-ballots continues to dominate the 2020 November elections, as more and more people face concerns over exposure to the novel coronavirus.

Democrats have been pushing for universal mail in ballots, while Republicans have been warning voters that universal mail-in-ballots are ripe with fraud and other critical problems that could affect the outcome of the election.

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
