OROVILLE, Calif. - Butte County D.A. Mike Ramsey is taking on the Oroville City Council Tuesday.

Action News Now talked to the Butte County Clerk, Candace Grubbs. She said Ramsey plans to confront them about violating the Brown Act.

This comes after five of the seven candidates met to talk about possible voter fraud.

The five council members got word that about a dozen mail-in ballots were delivered to a storage unit.

Grubbs told Action News Now the previous owner of the facility allowed homeless people to use the commercial address to receive mail.

Ramsey says that's usually OK as long as the people using that address live within the city limits - even if its just a street corner.

However, he's still looking into the matter.

"From our records, many of them have not even voted," Grubbs said. "They had registered and not voted so, and some have, I understand in Oroville that they're afraid that people that live outside the city are trying to register inside the city we did not find that." 

The reason Ramsey is concerned about the Brown Act because only five out of the seven council members met with the clerk.

The Brown Act says all council members have to be present for official business and the public has to be kept in the loop.
