Hi all,

I could use some help identifying the wires in one of my light switch box to swap out for a smart light switch. I see the line and load wires that were connected to the old switch, one of which is pigtailed from 3 separate wires. I also see the white neutral wires that were tucked neatly in the back before I pulled them out. However, I don't see the ground wire. There are no other wires in the box. The other light switches on another circuit had a freestanding ground wire in the box, and the hot wire was not pigtailed, and I was able to successfully install the smart switch. The switches on this current circuit all have similar wiring where I don't see a ground wire. Is it possible that in the box in the pictures, the ground wire is pigtailed to the hot wire for some reason? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
