The States That Are Auditing Their 2020 Election Results

Election

With the 2020 election being one of the most contentious elections in a generation, many states are still investigating their election results. The four states conducting audits of various aspects of their 2020 election results are Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania.

At the Veterans, Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix, Arizona, an extensive forensic audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results is currently taking place. The Arizona Senate began the auditing process back in January due to widespread reports of fraud and irregularities in Maricopa County. However, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors refused to comply with the Arizona Senate until Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ordered them to do so on February 26, 2021.

The comprehensive audit of all of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots from the 2020 election is being conducted by the security firm Cyber Ninjas. The firm uses a unique process to examine the ballots that include identifying differences in ballot text, color, and thickness, as well as inspecting mail-in ballots for folds and verifying the signatures on each ballot. If the process is proven effective at identifying fraud and anomalies, it will likely be used by other states as a model for audits of their own 2020 election results. The Maricopa County forensic audit is currently over 60% completed and is expected to be completed by the end of June.

In Georgia, 531 prominent Republicans recently sent a letter to Governor Brian Kemp urging him to launch a full forensic audit into the state’s 2020 election results. The letter was signed by various Georgia Republicans, ranging from grassroots conservative activists to Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer.

News of the bombshell letter comes as an audit of all of Fulton County, Georgia’s absentee ballots are set to begin. According to a recent ruling from Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero, approximately 147,000 absentee ballots from Fulton County, Georgia’s November 2020 election must be unsealed and audited.

The ruling came after a lawsuit was filed in the Fulton County Superior Court that alleges extensive instances of voter fraud and voting irregularities occurred in Fulton County during the 2020 election. If the audit in Fulton County produces evidence of voter fraud or voting irregularities, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will be compelled to authorize a statewide forensic audit that emulates the one currently being conducted in Arizona.

In the small town of Windham, New Hampshire, discrepancies in their 2020 election results could have statewide or nationwide implications. New Hampshire election officials recently conducted a post-election audit in the town of Windham due to major differences between reported election results on Election Night and reported election results after a hand recount. On Election Night, election results showed that Republicans swept all four of Windham’s state representative races. However, Democrat Kristi St. Laurent lost a seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives by just 24 votes. As a result, she requested a recount.

The results of the recount did not go in her favor. Following a hand recount of the election results in New Hampshire’s House of Representatives Rockingham County district seven-race, the margins between each candidate changed significantly. The vote totals for each of the four Republican candidates on the ballot in the race increased by around 300, whereas Democrat St. Laurent’s vote total decreased by nearly 100.

While the recount did not change the overall outcome of the election, the major discrepancies between the results tabulated by voting machines and the results reported by the hand recount appear to show a potentially major flaw in the voting machines. For this reason, the New Hampshire Senate unanimously passed S.B. 43 on April 12, 2021. The bill authorized an audit of ballots and voting machines in Windham to determine why the reported results on Election Night and the results reported after the recount differed tremendously. A report that details the results of the audit will be published by July 11, 2021. If the major discrepancies identified in the Windham recount are confirmed by the audit, a statewide audit of the 2020 New Hampshire election results will likely be imminent.

Although there is currently no official outline for a statewide audit of Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results, a delegation of three Pennsylvania lawmakers toured the site of the Arizona audit last week. Members of the delegation included Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rob Kauffman, Pennsylvania State Senator Cris Dush, and Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano.

After the tour, the delegation members called for an audit similar to the Arizona audit to take place in Pennsylvania. To quote Sen. Doug Mastriano, “I’m convinced it needs to happen here…Should an audit happen in Pennsylvania, the Arizona model is the one.” This move is obviously popular with the people of Pennsylvania, considering the fact that over 50,000 Pennsylvania residents have already signed a petition calling for a full forensic audit of their state’s 2020 election results. With various audits in three other states nearly complete, Pennsylvania has the opportunity to conduct a forensic audit of their 2020 election results that incorporates the best aspects of each preceding audit.

Since there is no precedent for the post-election audits being conducted in numerous states, the future is still unclear. What is clear is that there was something extremely unique about the 2020 election that warrants these unconventional audits across America.

I think that by now most Americans believe that the votes should be properly counted to look for dead voters and any other fraudulent votes. With all of the things that are going on in our country, it’s impossible to not believe that there were some very major doings behind the scenes in our last presidential election. If you have opinions that you wish to share with other conservatives, then you need to head over to FrankSpeech.com where Mike Lindell has set up a new social network where you can learn about all of the things being done to help change what we are dealing with now though our liberal representatives.

I think it was three. They came from the Villages and they were Trump supporters.I don’t think they had any effect on the outcome of the election. Oh yeah, there was a couple of guys in Pennsylvania that voted illegally. They also voted for Trump. Again no widespread voter fraud. How many recounts have taken place? It’s way past time to recognize that Trump simply lost.

I doubt if many people actually believe Joe Biden won this last election. Nonetheless, this constant resistance to prove once and for all that Biden DID win in 2020 is disconcerting. Michigan and Pennsylvania both need to allow an audit of their election results. The argument that “there is no evidence” is a bit coy now. How many serious crime investigations have been prevented to begin because “there was no evidence,” just a robbed safe or a dead body? You will never be able to find evidence if you are not allowed to return to the crime scene. Democrats, for some reason, do not want such an investigation from proceeding.

There is also “no evidence” showing that there was any fraud. We lost, has become synonymous with “Fraud!” Just because Trump says is 1000 times, does not make it so! 81 million people do believe that Biden won.

You’d be right. I seriously doubt that 81 million people would say that he didn’t. So, this comment >” I doubt if many people actually believe Joe Biden won this last election”< is simply absurd. The majority of people that voted believe Biden won and Trump lost. Occams Razor: The simplest answer is usually the right one. Biden got more votes. That means he won. It would be the end of story among rational people. MAGA’s are not rational. They’re irrational.

How many audits have happened and in how many states? Has there been anything to overturn the election anywhere? No. What happened in Az with the Cyber Ninjas? Nothing. no bamboo. No watermarks. no fraud. They even said Biden won. Take your wormwood and come back to fight another day. This day is lost.

All states have had some level of audits. Maricopa Co had 3 audits before Cyber Ninjas did theirs.

Why not accept the audits that have been done? Why waste any time on a faulty audit by a highly partisan unqualified company like Cyber Ninjas?

Do any of you bother to watch what’s going on with the revelations that the BIG Lie was part of a coup attempt? Trump tried to get the Sec of State in Georgia to stuff the ballot box for him so he could win Georgia. Trump began calling the election rigges six months before it took place, setting the table for his followers to believe the Big Lie. He lost the damn election. Every has certified the results. Fake electors show up in Michigan, and they call themselves “alt” electors. The winning party gets to name the electors. Biden won those states and the Dems name, the electors. It’s embarrassing to see these MAGA’s flailing about like fish out of water crying foul, liars, cheaters, stop the steal. Get over yourselves. You lost.

Larry Allen Brown

What criminal activity? Do you mean what happened on 1/6? That’s all under investigation. However, if you’re talking about the election there was none. 67 courts rejected Trumps’ claims and those were Republican judges appointed by Trump. SCOTUS wouldn’t even hear the argument and he appointed 3 of the Justices. Do you think it’s possible you could be wrong about all of this? Is it possible? Or do you believe that Trump is Infallibly right about everything? I’m only asking to try to determine if you still claim to be a rational person. Because the irrationality behind these wild claims is way beyond nuts.

Number one you show your level of intelligence right away when you state that all states have had some level of audits. Nothing about this statement is true. There is a difference between a recount and a full forensic audit. Also, Mericopa Co did not have 3 audits prior to the Cyber Ninjas being asked yo step in.
Why not accept the audits that have been done? Why waste any time on a faulty audit by a highly partisan unqualified company like Cyber Ninjas? Well, because taking a handful of cherry picked ballots and simply running them though the machines again proves absolutely nothing other than that clearly Democrats think that we are stupid, As for the Cyber Ninjas, I would challenge you to explain why it is that you think they are unqualified beyond the fact that that’s what you heard someone say on CNN and that’s all it takes to convince you.
Your arguments and excuses as well as those from every other democrat I’ve heard so far are idiotic and childish at best, Anyone with nothing to hide and who had total confidence in the results would have no issues with performing full forensic audits across the country if desired. However, democrats have do nothing but resist, attempt to block and have gone as far now as having destroyed evidence in the case of Mericopa Co. This alone should render the results void and a new election should be held in my opinion. There has since been enormous evidence of widespread election fraud discovered in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas and many other states proving to any rational person that clearly something has taken place. And this isn’t even discussing how much influence Big Tech and the MSM had on manipulating the minds of voters with targeted misinformation.

Hey ya all! If you have been curious and involved from the beginning, you’d know that the Military recognize DJT as Commander In Chief, not dummy that is telling MSM what his plans are. On the other note, it is like a dual Presidency, that has happened only once before, when Lincoln was in office. I am getting involved in local politics to stop the B.S. There have been things going on behind the scenes that a lot of us don’t know. DJT never conceded or really stepped down. He isn’t going to let 80+million Americans that voted for him, down. This good vs. evil and good prevails. Keep the faith. Pray.

There was no dual Presidency when Lincoln was in office. What are you talking about? You’re getting into local politics to spread BS if you think that statement of yours is true. You’re letting some kind of MAGA mentality infect your grasp of reason. There was only one President of the United States then it was Lincoln. Jefferson Davis was the president of an immoral breakaway state of insurrectionist traitors looking to create an independent slave state. . Lincoln was the 16th President. I see no others in our list of POTUS. We have one POTUS at a time. Trump can’t accept that it’s even possible that he could lose which is completely irrational and you believe him which puts you in the same hole. Climb out and get real.

Exactly. Just saying that it’s false by a bunch of partisan hacks doesn’t make it false. Show some evidence. Something to go on. Not BS. The Republican courts with Trump-appointed judges aren’t convinced he has a case. Why would anybody else keep pushing this bull? Trump can’t accept losing. We know he’s a narcissistic egomaniac who can’t accept that possibility. But that doesn’t mean everybody else has to become a mindless sycophant. What are they getting out of it besides a red hat?

A recount just “recounts” all the fraudulently submitted ballots. A forensic audit confirms the paper, ink, signatures, voter rolls, folds, envelopes, and other features that determine the validity of the ballot. BIG difference.

What fraudulently submitted ballots are you talking about? Where? Don’t just say it. Show us the proof of what you are saying? Wisc held a recount and found the Biden actually won by more than they thought. Cyber Ninjas examined the ballots looking for evidence of bamboo and watermarks. There was none. Get over this shit. you lost an election. It happens. We couldn’t believe he beat Hillary but we didn’t put the country through this kind of crap. Trump was complaining that the election was rigged 6 months before it took place. He did that to set the table in case he lost. He needed people like you to go along with his own fraud. Stop the Steal?? That’s exactly what he’s been trying to do. Overturn the election based on the Big Lie.

I am thrilled that this many states are conducting these audits. This is the first time ever that the swing states stopped counting at the same time on election night. Note that Trump was winning each state before the halt in counting. Some states took longer to collect enough votes so they could announce Trump the loser. I truly hope that these states will carefully investigate all the ballots and the machines that were not supposed to be hooked to the internet so it was impossible for them to be able to be interfered with by other countries.

The moment Mike Pence signed off on the fraudulent electors presented by the corrupted Key States, it was game over…An ILLEGAL 2020 Presidential Election was allowed to stand on Jan 6, 2021, regardless of how it happened. All of it was well planned long in advance & this is why Nancy Pelosi was so sure of herself when asked if Trump would ever win a 2nd term, long before there was a Democrat presidential nominee… She obviously knew something way back then that nobody else even faintly knew…The 1/6/21 insurrection at the capital was well planned in advance too. It was a ” false flag ” event from the get go & video backs this up & it NEVER was a coincidence that the AZ elector fraud was presented & the PA fraudulent elector evidence never got heard whilst the breach occurred at precisely the right moment for the grand illusion, aka FALSE OPTICS…
The ENTIRE Democrat Party is still pushing this FALSE narrative along with Facebook & Twitter & their fellow partners in crime, the FAKE NEWS, i.e. MSM…
Both audio & video tells an entirely different storyline that is still being perpetuated by the criminals currently running this nation…
By most accounts we now have a weak kneed military that is standing down with total inaction on their part for all to clearly see…If this continues much longer, We The People have lost our nation.

She wasn’t murdered. She attempted to attack Congress and was shot in the attempt. And she died over the Big Lie. Trump is responsible for that. How can you say that nobody was in danger when the thugs attacking were calling “Hang Mike Pence” and were looking to kill Pelosi? Don’t lie. The whole world saw the video, and now you want to say don’t believe what we saw. Ashley Babbit did not have to try to climb through that door to get to the chambers. She was shot and died in her attempt to overthrow the election and the government. Did you think that the Capital Police and Secret Service were just ornaments? They have guns and they’ll use them if somebody threatens members of Congress. Nobody was charged because she wasn’t murdered.

More Conspiracy theory bullshit. Pence had no choice in the matter. His role was ceremonial. You don’t really understand that our framers would NEVER have allowed that kind of scenario to overturn an election in which the guy that was to sign off on it was also on the ballot where he had a vested interest in the outcome. It creates a conflict of interest. So he was only there to certify the results as presented by the electors. Not to change the results. The framers didn’t shed blood and risk everything to get rid of one tyrant, just to create another one with some dumb loophole in the constitution. They weren’t stupid. He’s compelled by the constitution to sign off. If he failed to do that, nobody would ever believe he wasn’t doing what Trump wanted out of self-interest, over the interest of the country. It’s no different than a Gov of a state signing off on the electors regardless of whether his party won or not. He doesn’t get to override the will of the people. The party of the winning candidate gets to select the electors. The votes were counted and in many cases counted again and again and again. And the results are always the same. Trump lost. Biden won. So you and your ilk wanted to hang Mike Pence for following the constitution instead of Trump. You’re all pretty sick, aren’t you? I mean really absolutely insane. You’ve all bought the Big Lie. Where do you think he came up with this crap? Trump is a wannabe dictator. Who do you think used the Big Lie to grab a country? It didn’t end well.

You don’t follow it, so why would anybody expect that you’d act any differently than you are now. You’re a bunch of lemmings that will jump off a cliff if Trump tells you to do it. He was right about one thing; he could shoot somebody on 5th AVE and not lose a vote.
