As if San Franciscans didn’t have enough to worry about with faulty voting machines and slow ballot counting, a report from CBS news tells us that the building in which ballots are stored is unsafe. The old building, across the street from City Hall, has no fire sprinklers, Election Department Chief John Arntz confirms. Furthermore, the chain link fence is insecure. There is no word how seriously city officials are taking this unfortunate situation. There is no doubt much wringing of hands and shifting of blame in City Hall, but citizens need to stay alert to make sure something is actually done. Secure voting is a basic right and well worth the expense of maintaining security for our ballots.
