Is it legal for a candidate to have access to ballots after the election?

I just found out my local representative (who runs unopposed every year) looks at the write-in names under his on the ballots and then hires a private detective to investigate all of the people named in the write in line of the ballot. This sounds illegal to me as I'm pretty sure candidates shouldn't be looking at actual ballots. Aren't they supposed to be counted by the computers or poll workers?
