Authorities are investigating how several stacks of more than 80 ballots were sent to a single address at a San Pedro apartment, it was reported Friday.

The ballots were found on Saturday by tenant Jerry Mosna, sitting on top of the mailbox center of their four-unit apartment building, the Daily Breeze reported.

The ballots appeared to be addressed to an apartment upstairs from Mosna’s.

Mosna said he recognized none of the names on the ballot envelopes.

Mosna told the newspaper that he went to the Los Angeles Police Department with the ballots. He was told to bring the ballots to the San Pedro post office, which sent then them back to the Los Angeles County Registrar- Recorder’s Office.

Mosna and his wife were interviewed by investigators from the U.S. Inspector General’s Office on Thursday, and the county registrar-recorder is looking into the matter.

Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan said in a statement that his office is “carefully reviewing our records and gathering information to fully identify what took place.”

“Our preliminary assessment is that this appears to be an isolated situation related to a system error that occurred, causing duplicate ballots to be issued to an address entered for a single voter,” he said. “We are working directly with the system vendor to ensure the issue is addressed and to identify any similar occurrences.”
