Police in Southern California say they found 300 mail-in ballots for the upcoming recall election in the car of a man who was passed out. 

Torrance police say they also found drugs and a loaded weapon in the vehicle. "Inside the vehicle, the officers found a loaded handgun, some narcotics, and then they found a bunch of mail and what turned out to be over 300 election ballots in the backseat of the vehicle," said Sgt. Mark Ponegalek with the Torrance Police Department.

 Los Angeles county officials are working to get new ballots to the voters who had them stolen from them. The Los Angeles County Registrar's office said that those ballots for the Sept. 14 recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom had been sent out but were not filled out and returned by voters.
