President Trump denies the postal service funds to deal with influx of mail-in ballots, Butte County

President Trump denied the United States Postal Service $25 billion dollars in funds to deal with the influx of mail-in ballots, because of fears of voter fraud.

Butte County locals and officials respond with how they're keeping your vote secure.

But first, president trump continues to target mail-in voting.

In a phone interview with fox business network this morning, the president said he will not give into democrats' demands to give more money to the cash- strapped post office, claiming it will only enable the mailing of millions of ballots, which he continues to claim will lead to voter fraud in november.

President trump: "one of the reasons the post office needs that much money is that they have all of these millions of ballots coming in from... nowhere, and nobody knows from where, and where they're going..."

Democratic challenger joe biden accuses the president of trying to sabotage the election.

Because of the pandemic, governor gavin newsom announced in may that all registered voters in california will receive mail-in ballots for the november general election.

Should voters feel confident in the integrity of the election?

We asked action news now reporter esteban reynoso to take that question to butte county clerk - recorder candace grubbs.

He's live now in chico, esteban, what did you learn?

When i spoke with the butte county clerk's office today, they said dropping off your ballot into one of these u-s- p-s drop boxes or turning it into a voter assistance center by election night is the best way to make sure your vote gets tallied come november.

"they're picked up by two people."

When you vote mail-in, the ballots are never left to just one person.

"ballots are always handled by two people, they're brought in by two people.

That's one of the ideas to having the two person rule."

That rule is to reduce the amount of employee intervention.

"the ballots come back in their envelope, and they are all go through the equipment.

All that information also goes to the secratary of state's office, we got the ballot and you can check right on our website you know, where's my ballot.

As soon as we log it in, the vote cal system will know it's there."

This process brings piece of mind to some locals here in chico.

"i voted for over 20 years mail-in, i'm completely confident in it.

I feel good about it."

But as election night inches closer -- grubbs says it will take more people to help with all those ballots.

"we're just gonna need one or two more people to help us handle all those ballots coming back."

I asked butte county how they ballots to every registered voter before the elections.
