Shasta County’s elections process has been examined by the Grand Jury. With a fear of voter fraud being a popular topic among some politicians, the panel decided to see just how possible that would be. What they found was an elections apparatus with multiple safeguards run by competent and conscientious public servants. It was determined to be accurate, smooth, and nearly impossible to falsify under the current system. It was also discovered that nearly 80% of Shasta County ballots are done through the mail, and the average voter is over 60 years old.
