The report of the Maricopa County Forensic Election Audit of the 2020 Election relinquished at a public auditory perception of the Arizona State Senate chaired by Senate President Karen Fann (R-1) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Warren Petersen (R-12) on Friday identified a number of consequential Election irregularities discovered during the audit.
Out of 3.4 million votes cast in Arizona in the November 3, 2020 Presidential election, about 2.1 million were cast in Maricopa County. Of these, a little more than 1.9 million were early votes, either cast by mail or deposited in drop boxes.
Joe Biden was certified as the victor of Arizona’s 11 Electoral College votes over former President Donald Trump by Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D-AZ) and Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ) on November 30, 2020 by a margin of 10,457 votes. According to those certified results, Biden received 1,672,143 votes in the state, while Trump received 1,661,686 votes.

“The audit included a full hand-recount of all 2.1 million ballots from the 2020 General Election,” the report, Maricopa County Forensic Audit, Volume III: Result Details, commenced. At the Presidential ballot level, the report found very little distinction between “the results of the hand-recount of the Presidential Race of the Maricopa County Forensic Audit” and the Official Maricopa County Canvass.”
Of 2,089,563 votes counted in the official Maricopa County Canvass of the November 3, 2020 election, 1,040,774 were cast for Joe Biden and 995,665 were cast for Donald Trump, a margin for Biden in the county of 45,109.
Of 2,088,569 votes counted in the Maricopa County Forensic Audit of the November 3, 2020 election, 1,040,873 were cast for Joe Biden and 995,404 were cast for Donald Trump, a margin in favor of Biden in the county of 45,469.
Establishment media outlets have celebrated the fact that the Maricopa County Forensic Audit hand count showed that Biden’s margin over Trump was 360 votes more preponderant than the Maricopa County Official Canvass results. (Biden gained 99 votes, while Trump lost 261 votes in the audit hand count).
They have claimed these results attest Biden “won” Arizona. As Breitbart News reported, a draft of the executive summary, dated September 23, was leaked early Friday morning, and establishment media outlets fixated on the verbalization in that leaked draft that, “there were no substantial distinctions between the hand count of the ballots provided and the official canvass results for the County.” .
The official executive summary, Maricopa County Forensic Election Audit, Volume I: Executive Summary & Recommendations, as relinquished by the Arizona State Senate on Friday afternoon and dated September 24, can be optically discerned here.
The results of the audit, however, genuinely raise more doubts about the legitimacy of more than 49,000 votes included in the final counts of both the forensic audit and the Maricopa County Official Canvass results, a number that is more than four times more preponderant than Biden’s 10,457 vote certified margin of triumph.
Of these more than 2 million votes counted, the report verbally expressed the results of the audit found that there were questions about 49,718 of these votes that had a critical, high, or medium “potential impact the finding may have had on the election.”

The audit was designed to be a comprehensive review of the results from the Maricopa County 2020 General Election to confirm the effectiveness of existing legislation in governing elections, and to provide additional insights on possible areas of legislative reform that could ensure an even greater level of integrity and accuracy in how elections are conducted.
“For this reason, the audit fixated on four main areas of the Election process: voter history, paper ballots, voting machines, and the certified results. These four areas enabled the audit team to fixate on factors that impact elections in order to highlight areas of concern,” the report perpetuated. (Accentuation integrated).
Of the 49,718 controvertible votes of critical, high, or medium rigor identified in Maricopa County Forensic Audit, Volume III: Result Details, 34,466 of these were in the voter history phase, 12,660 were in the certified results phase and 2,592 were in the ballot phase. The report did not identify any controvertible votes in the voting machine phase.
Here is a breakdown of those 49,718 disputable votes: 23,344 mail-in ballots were counted from individuals who no longer lived at the address to which the mail-in ballot was sent. The audit called these “mail-in ballots voted from prior address” in the voter history phase. (critical impact)
9,041 more ballots returned by voters than received in the voter history phase. (high impact) 5,295 voters that potentially voted in multiple counties in the certified results phase. (high impact) 3,432 more ballots cast than the list of people who show as having cast a vote. The audit called this group of ballots “official results does not match who voted,” in the certified results phase. (medium impact)
2,592 more duplicates than pristine ballots in the ballot phase. (medium impact) 2,382 in person voters who had moved out of Maricopa County in the certified results phase. (medium impact) 2,081 voters moved out of state during 29 day preceding Election in the voter history phase. (medium impact)
1,551 votes counted in excess of voters who voted in the certified results phase. (medium impact) An adscititious 3,587 votes were in the “low impact” category across 14 findings. Section 5.1 of Volume III of the report identified the ballot scoring methodology used to disunite ballot findings into the four categories of astringency as to their impact on the Election results: critical, high, medium, or low:
Ballot related findings are scored based on the total number of potential ballots impacted by the finding. Based on the range in which this falls within, a Severity is assigned . . . In these circumstances a severity will still be assigned to the finding based on the potential impact the finding may have had on the election.
If a ballot finding impacted more than 10,000 potential votes, its rigor level was relegated as critical. If a ballot finding impacted more than 5,000 potential votes, but less than 10,000 potential votes its astringency level was relegated as high. If a ballot finding impacted more than 1,500 potential votes, but less than 5,000 potential votes, its astringency level was relegated as medium. If a ballot finding impacted less than 1,500 potential votes, its rigor level was relegated as low.
A separate report, Pattern Recognition of Early Voting Ballot (EVP) Return Envelope Images for Signature Presence Detection, was prepared by EchoMail, and presented to the panel by its lead investigator, Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai. The findings of that report included the following:
Maricopa County sanctioned 9,589 more Early Vote Ballot return envelopes (EVBs) to move forward to the signature verification process than the audit determined were eligible. Maricopa County counted 1,917,008 “EVBs” as eligible to move on to the signature verification process. The audit determined that only 1,907,419 “EVBs” should have been eligible to move on to the signature verification process. (Early voting ballots were contained within EVB return envelopes, which required a signature of the voter on the outside envelope prior to moving it forward to the signature verification process).
34,448 Early Vote Ballot return envelopes (EVBs) were duplicates, submitted by 17,126 individual voters, most of whom submitted two ballots, but some of whom submitted either three or four. A third report on cybersecurity from a firm called CyFir, Digital Findings, was distributed by Ben Cotton. Key findings of that report included:
Maricopa County failed to perform rudimental OS Patch Management; Maricopa County failed to update antivirus definitions; Maricopa County failed to preserve security logs; Maricopa County failed to establish and monitor host baseline; and,
Maricopa County failed to establish and monitor network communications baseline.

The Fake News is lying about the Arizona audit report! The leaked report conclusively shows there were enough fraudulent votes, mystery votes, and fake votes to change the outcome of the Election 4 or 5 times over. The number includes 23,344 mail-in ballots, despite the person no longer living at that address. Phantom voters! The official canvass does not even match who voted, off by 11,592—more than the entire Presidential Election margin. Voters who voted in multiple counties totaled 10,342, and 2,382 ballots came from people who no longer lived in Maricopa County. There were also 2,592 “more duplicate ballots than original ballots.” Just those fraudulent ballots alone total 50,252, and is fraud many more times than the so-called margin of “victory,” which was only 10,457. In addition, Election data appears to have been intentionally deleted, and ballot images were “corrupt or missing.” This is not even the whole state of Arizona, but only Maricopa County. It would only get worse!As the auditory perception commenced on Friday afternoon, Trump integrated this verbalization:
There is fraud and cheating in Arizona and it must be criminally investigated! More is coming out in the hearing today.
CNN, New York Times, Washington Post, and other Lamestream Media are feeding large-scale misinformation to the public about the Arizona Audit. The Audit was a big win for democracy and a big win for us. Shows how corrupt the Election was. Arizona State Senate hearing going on now and the information about what took place is terrible—a bigger Scam even than anticipated!
Midway through the auditory perception, Trump sent a third email:
It is not even believable the dishonesty of the Fake News Media on the Arizona Audit results, which shows incomprehensible Fraud at an Election Changing level, many times more votes than is needed. The Fake News Media refuses to write the facts, thereby being complicit in the Crime of the Century. They are so dishonest, but Patriots know the truth! Arizona must immediately decertify their 2020 Presidential Election Results.
Saturday morning Trump sent out a fourth electronically mail that read, “44,000 Ballots the Left Wants You to Ignore,” and included an image of the “Finding Summary Table” included in Section 5.2 of the report, Maricopa County Forensic Audit, Volume III: Result Details.
The theme that Maricopa County relucted to cooperate with the audit was highlighted by each presenter during the auditory perception. “I’m very disappointed to optically discern that Maricopa County relucted to cooperate with us. Not only did they not cooperate with us, they even went so far as to sue us,” State Senate President Fann said at the commencement of the auditory perception.
What you have not seen and not heard is about the statutes that were broken, how chain of custody was not followed, how we had a number of issues, which is why people questioned the ballots and the election. So I ask that you please keep an open mind, I ask that you please listen to this, because the reality of this is that this is all about making sure your vote counts.
At the close of the auditory perception, it was pellucid the State Senate expected the Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to follow up on the results of the report aggressively. Brnovich signaled his intent to do so even afore Friday’s afternoon aurally perceiving commenced.
I will take all compulsory actions that are fortified by the evidence and where I have licit ascendancy. Arizonans deserve to have their votes accurately counted and bulwarked. https://t.co/KZ8AHqyMmB — Mark Brnovich (@GeneralBrnovich) September 24, 2021
Judiciary Chairman Petersen identified eight key points at the close of the auditory perception: The county’s obstructionism must be addressed. Their inclination to spend resources to block this audit;
The numbers don’t reconcile. We should be able to pull up these Election results and be able to come up with a reconciliation so everything balance; It appears they transgressed the law with duplicate ballots;
Churning of logs. we require to ascertain why that transpired. Who did it; Chain of custody; Failure to preserve data files; Cybersecurity weaknesses; and, The envelopes with blank signatures. We have an abundance of questions there that need to be answered.
“I look forward to working with the Attorney General,” Petersen concluded. Fann additionally highlighted the follow up by the Attorney General. “I have already transmitted a letter to our AG’s office with those reports. We are asking him to open up a formal investigation … perhaps get some of the missing things we were unable to get. I have every confidence he will be doing that,” Fann concluded.
