Kelli Ward summarizes AZ election audit hearing -- preliminary results
The presidential election in Arizona was decided by about 10K votes.
From the audit results, just the preliminary ones so far, we have more than 70K absentee ballots received than were mailed out. Where did they come from, if not fraud? Poor record keeping of mailed out ballots is possible but that many? And if by some mischance the record was lost, shouldn't we -- in the interests of keeping our votes safe -- discard the resulting unknown ballots?
There were 10K voters added to the voter rolls after election day that nevertheless cast a vote in the election. That shouldn't happen. Those ballots should not be counted.
Bleed-through on ballots may have invalidated votes. Does this point to improper paper stock used for ballots? Election-day print-on-demand ballots may have been legitimately printed on ordinary paper stock, and there were 168k of those print-on-demand ballots. Meaning this issue could go either way -- Trump voters are more likely to vote on election day, and legitimate Trump voters might have their votes canceled. Or, invalid ballots on incorrect paper stock may have been injected into the system as part of a fraud operation. More investigation is being conducted here.
And the totals reported do not match the totals provided to the audit. We don't yet know by how much; a third physical count is being conducted.
