Broward employee fired after reporting on elections staff 'filling out stacks of blank ballots'
Plaintiffs, Matthew Caldwell and The Campaign To Elect Matt Caldwell Commissioner of Agriculture have filed a complaint against defendant Dr. Brenda Snipes in her capacity as Supervisor of Elections for Broward County.
Matt Caldwell has filed a lawsuit against Brenda Snipes amid the voting controversy in Broward County, Florida. Within the lawsuit contains a paragraph that states a woman named Chelsey Marie Smith was a temp worker for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office. She stated, in a signed and sworn statement, that she witnessed four employees who were allegedly "filling out stacks of blank ballots."
Smith identified one of the people filling out the ballots as Mary Hall.
Mary Hall is the Voter Services Director for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office.
A copy of the lawsuit is linked below as one of the sources. You can read the full legal document there. Below is one quote from page 2, showing the item that describes the incident with the staffers completing the ballots.
11. Amongst the egregious allegations against Snipes and her office is the swornrn statement from a woman, Chelsey Marie Smith, who details her experience on October 31, 2016, while working as a temporary employee at the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office. Ms. Smith describes in her affidavit (a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 1) entering a locked and secured room at the office and observing four employees filling out stacks of blank ballots. She was able to identify one employee as Mary Hall, who currently serves as the Voter Services Director for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office. According to Ms. Smith, she was terminated the next day with no explanation.

Affidavit filed by Broward Election’s employee in support of Caldwell lawsuit provides eye witness account of Elections staff filling in blank ballots. When this was reported the employee was fired and told not to come back. #sayfie— Jeff Kottkamp (@JeffKottkamp) November 10, 2018

The photograph used for this story shows Mary Hall. Who is still working according to video taken of her and posted above. Broward County has a lot of issues right now. It's worth keeping an eye on.
