This past Tuesday was a beautiful day for baseball as the Chicago Cubs played the Cincinnati Reds at Wrigley Field. It was also Primary Election Day in Illinois to select party nominees for the upcoming midterm elections in November. The attendance for the game was around 38,000, with several thousand more in the neighborhood they call Wrigleyville.
Watch a video I took of a "secure" ballot box at Chicago's Wrigley Field last Tuesday:

I was surprised to a “secure” ballot election dropbox sitting out in the open about 90 feet from one of the entrances to the ballpark. It appeared to be guarded by two young people who I was told were employed by the Chicago Board of Elections. I watched off and on during the day as people brought up ballots to drop in the box, it appeared no photo identification or signature was required to leave ballots in the box.
About 7:30 p.m. one person showed up to empty the “secure” ballot box. They opened the box which had a padlock on it and put the ballots into a bag. Some paperwork was signed with the two people watching the box then left. The man took the bag and placed it in a white van that said “Board of Elections.” He then drove off.
After viewing the dvd documentary, 2000 Mules, I think ALL ballot boxes need destroyed. Until that happens we will never have a fair & honest election
