A Glendale couple happened upon an open ballot box that was left in the middle of the road last night. The box, which did contain ballots, was found on Chevy Chase Drive at around 9:20 p.m., according to the Glendale News-Press.

The couple contact the police, who seized the box, then arranged for county election representatives to come pick it up.

Since it is a county elections matter, Glendale Police will not be doing any further investigation. The News-Press says "officials were aware of the discovery and were looking into it, but were not ready to comment on the matter."
