This past Monday, we were informed that the City of Somerville Election Commissioner called Somerville Department of Public Works maintenance foreman on the phone and asked him to come pick up a key for all the ten city election boxes throughout the city.
The election commissioner instructed the foreman to go around to the boxes and empty out all the ballots on Monday and then again on Tuesday (Election Day) and put them in the city DPW truck and then drop them off at City Hall.
The commissioner then instructed him to do it once during the day and once again in the evening. So in other words, our casted voting ballots, even if they are either a Democrat or a Republican ballot will be driving around in a green city truck by some DPW employee and we are supposed to put our trust into the system. Not!
Somebody should call the Secretary of State as well as the Massachusetts State Police and inform them of what the City of Somerville is doing is absolutely completely illegal.
