Is this a photo of 2020 general election mail-in ballots abandoned on the side of the road? No, that's not true: This a photo from 2018. A New Jersey-based U.S. Postal Service worker dumped this mail and later resigned.
Did you mail in your ballet? maybe it in one of theses boxes!

The Facebook post implied that this photo is from 2020. These bins of mail were found in Pennsauken, New Jersey, in the fall of 2018, according to a January 2019 report from NJ.com.
The mail, discovered Sunday, was dated Aug. 8 and out for delivery from the Roxborough Station Post Office in Philadelphia, according to Special Agent Scott Balfour, with the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, which investigates misconduct in the agency.
Agents tracked down the employee who threw out the mail, but learned the person resigned from the postal service Sept. 8, according to Balfour.
"We do not anticipate any further action against this individual," Balfour said Wednesday. "The Roxborough Station Post Office is going to deliver the mail."
Here is a truthful Facebook post of the same from 2018:
