Phoenix, AZ — A report on mail-in voting in Arizona’s Maricopa County has laid out evidence of fraud that may have swayed the outcome in favor of Democrat candidate Joe Biden.
173,104 votes were lost or missed according to take-home results. Despite the supposed voters being unknown, the election tally included 96,389 “ghost votes.”
“These results are a travesty to our democracy and our voting rights,” said the canvassing report, which was not associated with the long-awaited report from the state’s independent forensic audit of Maricopa’s 2.1 million votes.
Canvassing efforts were led by Liz Harris, a Republican state legislator who lost in 2020. She then crossed-checked the addresses of absentee ballot requesters with those of the voters who cast them. “It is obvious to anyone that voting by mail is ripe for fraud,” said the 11-page report’s “solution” section. “The US Mail is not meant to be a secure transactional system.”
Biden beat incumbent President Donald Trump by an alleged margin of 10,457 votes statewide in the 2016 presidential election. Both false-positive (ghost) votes as well as false-negative (lost) votes would have affected the outcome.
Arizona’s 11 electoral votes were not enough to win the election for Trump. However, when audits are undertaken, other states (Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania) may use Arizona’s findings as a guide and boost their own efforts. There is currently Republican control of state legislatures in all four of the tossup states that Trump won.
Additionally, these inconsistencies may have directly contributed to the Democrats gaining control of the US Senate. Democrat candidate Mark Kelly allegedly defeated GOP incumbent Martha McSally in the special election to fill the late John McCain’s seat by a margin of 78,886 votes statewide.
Among the firms hired by the Arizona Senate to conduct a forensic audit is Cyber Ninjas, which is still awaiting the final report. In addition to verifying the absentee ballots, it was tasked with examining other areas of concern. Among those were the possible hacking of the supposedly closed-system polling place equipment furnished by Dominion Voting Systems and the county’s use of Sharpie markers with bleed-through paper for provisional paper ballots.
During a July hearing, Cyber Ninjas head Doug Logan said the preliminary analyses of their audit also showed several inconsistencies that went well beyond Biden’s margin of victory. He noted that among the absentee ballot issues he identified, that there were “70,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent” and other residences that received more ballots than there were residents listed.

“Based on the data we’re seeing, I’d highly recommend that we do the canvassing,” Logan said. “ … I think when we’ve got 74,000 — it merits knocking on a door and verifying.”
