An audit of mail-in ballots cast in Montana for the 2020 presidential election reveals a host of irregularities including evidence that “one or several persons may have filled out and submitted multiple ballots” and the failure of a county elections office to provide video footage of vote-counting. “The story at hand begins during the pandemic summer of 2020, when the then-governor, Democrat Steve Bullock, issued a directive permitting counties to conduct the general election fully by mail,” John Lott, a noted crime and gun researcher, begins.

A judge ruled that an upcoming general election must be rescheduled so it can be held in person as opposed to relying on mail-in ballots. “A tribal court judge ruled Thursday that mail-in voting is against the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s constitution and ordered that the upcoming general election be rescheduled so it can be held in person,” a local news outlet summarized. In the decision from Amanda L.

A Maryland man received a mail-in ballot four months after the November 2020 election. What’s more, the Baltimore resident had voted in the 2020 election. The Baltimore Sun reports: Towson resident Isaac Perry Cocke had long since given up on receiving his mail-in ballot for November’s presidential election when it arrived last week, a whopping four months after Election Day. He was still able to vote — he drove to a county Board of Elections site and picked up his ballot all those months ago. “Cocke’s experience, while unique, is yet another example of mail-related woes that have persisted over
The Washington Post issued a correction revealing it “misquoted” Donald Trump’s comment on a call with a Georgia election official. The outlet quietly admitted that the former president never asked the state’s top election investigator to “find the fraud,” but rather encouraged the official to “scrutinize” ballots. The Post’s full, seven-sentence correction attributes the misquote to faulty “information provided by a source”: Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments

A Mississippi judge ruled in favor of a new election following overwhelming evidence of mail-in ballot fraud. “In the sixty-four-page order, Judge Jeff Weill not only calls for a new election but also finds evidence of fraud and criminal activity, in how absentee ballots were handled, how votes were counted, and the actions by some at the polling place,” local news reports. The race in question – a Democratic primary – occurred in Ward 1 or Aberdeen, Mississippi for the position of alderman between candidates Robert Devaull and Nicholas Holliday. The judge’s ruling revealed that sixty-six of eighty-four absentee ballots
Marc Elias, who has represented several high-profile Democrats including Vice President Kamala Harris, filed a legal complaint that alleged voting machines “misread hundreds if not thousands of valid votes” in a New York congressional race. Elias represented incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi, who’s trailing Republican Claudia Tenney by less than 125 votes in the state’s 22nd district. In a February 1st legal filing, Elias’s Perkins Coie law firm argued that “substantial errors and irregularities” plagued the election and cited differences in hand-counted ballots and machine-counted ballots. “In this case, there is reason to believe that voting tabulation machines misread hundreds if not thousands of valid
Michigan is conducting a two-week risk-limiting audit using over 18,000 randomly drawn ballots from across the state.

Republican and Democratic Clerks will now review the nearly 20,000 ballots selected from the system explained above, including a hand-review of paper ballots to determine “whether they match the machine-tabulated results.” READ MORE HERE.
