I'm curious, do we know if this invalidates the ballots, or is everything ok with those votes?

Diana, The Ballot Box in question, is only used for ballots during voting time. Once voting has stopped, the ballots are removed & counted, & then placed in a much smaller sealed box. All that is left in the 'ballot box' are the supplies that are used for the election....signs, flags, & all the misc, but no ballots.

I believe ballot boxes are only used during voting time, and I believe the ballots are counted. I think the crux of the question was had they been counted before the box fell on the street. It makes a difference where they were counted. This is a mild humor piece. Kidding abit..
