The Argument

In September 2020, Facebook photographs of "dumped" ballot envelopes in California were shared thousands of time on social media with claims of election rigging.[1]

Counter arguments

The official County of Sonoma published a statement addressing the postal ballot fraud claims: "The pictures are of old empty envelopes from the November 2018 election that were disposed of as allowed by law."[2] In fact, the county's ballots for the 2020 presidential election had not even been sent out to voters when the pictures claiming rigging where shared.
