Man steals ballot box - twice!

This story is from the election in 2000, on Monday this same guy did it again, this time trying to run over the ballot box with his truck. The ballots were retrieved this time. I know tampering elections isn't funny, but this is a pretty silly story once, twice it's hilarious.

The RCMP in Pictou are investigating a stolen ballot box after a man walked into the Pictou Landing Fire Hall Monday afternoon and took it. The man apparently left a letter outlining a grievance over compensation he felt he was owed. Elections Canada says the box, containing 126 ballots, was thrown into Pictou Harbour and cannot be retrieved. People who voted in poll number 25 in the riding of Pictou-Antigonish-Guysborough are invited to return to the fire hall and vote again.
