A Boston ballot box was set on fire early Sunday in what appears to be a “deliberate attack,” according to local officials, who called the incident “a disgrace to democracy.”

Authorities in Massachusetts have asked the FBI to investigate the blaze, which was sparked around 4 a.m. outside the main branch of the Boston Public Library.

The drop-off box held 122 ballots, 35 of which were largely spoiled, Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin’s office said.

Galvin and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh blasted the act as a “disgrace to democracy, a disrespect to the voters fulfilling their civic duty, and a crime.”

Boston Police on Sunday released two images of a possible suspect in the arson investigation. In one image, the man appears to be holding an object with a glowing flame near the ballot box.
