An unknown number of ballots were stolen from a polling station near San Francisco’s Excelsior District late Tuesday afternoon, a police spokesman said. At about 4:15 p.m., police received reports that an automatic ballot-counting machine had been broken into in the 100 block of Knott Court, Officer Albie Esparza said. An unknown number of ballots were missing, and the machine’s memory pack had been taken, Esparza said. Police believe a poll worker is responsible for the theft, he said. More information is expected to be available later today.
