A 50-year-old San Francisco poll worker was arrested this morning for allegedly stealing dozens of ballots from an Excelsior District polling station on Election Day, police said. Karl Bradfield Nicholas, of San Francisco, is charged with one count of burglary and two counts of elections code violations, all felonies, police spokeswoman Lt. Lyn Tomioka said. According to Tomioka, at about 4:20 p.m., another poll worker at the station on Knott Court discovered that 75 ballots and a memory box from an automatic ballot-counting machine had been taken, and that Nicholas had left. Nicholas was arrested at his home at 1:12 a.m. today, but the missing ballots and the memory box were not found, Tomioka said.
