GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) — Southern California authorities say they've recovered all the ballots that went flying Tuesday night in Glendale when a ballot box fell from a moving car.

KNBC-TV says a poll worker was taking 350 ballots from Chevy Chase Drive to a check-in center at City Hall when he put the box on top of the car and drove off.

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder Dean Logan says the man only realized the box was missing when he arrived. Horrified, he rushed back and found some ballots strewn across the road.

A strolling couple later found other ballots and the box. They called police, who helped them pick up the ballots.

Logan says all the ballots are now accounted for and will be counted.
