Police say the ballot box at the Mill Creek Post Office was accidentally hit by a post office semi-truck, as the driver was trying to navigate a roundabout there.
Mill Creek Police Officer Todd Bridgman said after investigating the incident, it was clear that the damage was unintentional.
"We didn't issue any tickets or anything," Bridgman said. "It was an accident."
The box is a prized item for some local voters, with resident Glenda Teck saying she has used the ballot box over time.
"It was demolished, again," she said, recalling other times that the same ballot box has been hit.
