Confirmed: 200,000 ballots from 2020 counted with 'mismatched' signatures

Maricopa County, Arizona, officials admitted after the 2020 presidential election that there were some 25,000 ballots counted with mismatched signatures that weren’t reviewed, or in the language of the election industry, “cured.”

Actually, the number was more than 200,000.

That’s according to a study of the county’s mail ballots that year that was commissioned by the Arizona State Senate, explains a new report from Just the News.

The study of signature verification processes is just one of the outcomes of the 2020 presidential election ballot count that now is mired in multiple scandals.

What is known is that several individual influences probably changed the outcome, including the collusion by the legacy and social media organizations to suppress accurate – and damaging – information about the Biden family’s overseas businesses profits.

A subsequent survey by the Media Research Center revealed had that information been disseminated, enough voters would have withheld their support for Joe Biden that he would have lost the election.

Secondly, multiple state and local officials simply ignored, or violated, state laws regarding mail-in ballots to “accommodate” the COVID pandemic.

Finally, Mark Zuckerberg handed out nearly $420 million through a couple of foundations to local elections officials mostly with instructions to recruit voters from Democrat districts. A later report on this activity said this move likely “bought” the election for Biden, and those actions, which fell outside of any ordinary election funding regulation, now are being made illegal in multiple states.

Just the News reported the study was done by Shiva Ayyadurai’s Election Systems Integrity Institute, after the county claimed 25,000, 1.3%, of the 1,911,918 early voting mail ballots “had signature mismatches that required curing.” The county said only 587 were confirmed as mismatched signatures.

The report explained, “Under Maricopa County election rules, a reviewer first compares a signature on an envelope with the signature on file for the voter, which takes about 4-30 seconds. If the signature does not appear to match, the ballot is cured, which takes three or more minutes and includes attempts to contact the voter to determine whether or not the signature is a match.”

The study involved three expert forensic document examiners and three novices reviewing 499 images of early voting mail ballots – to check the signature match.

“All the reviewers agreed that 60 of the 499 envelopes, or 12% were signature mismatches,” Just the News explained. “The pilot study extrapolated from the sample that more than 204,430 ballots should have been cured, and 5,277 should have been rejected.”

Ayyadurai said further reviews are warranted.

Former President Trump, at the CPAC meetings over the weekend, addressed “social media censorship of news harmful to Joe Biden during the 2020 campaign and vast private donations to effectively convert public election offices into Democrat voter turnout engines in carefully targeted swing state districts,” the report said.

He charged, “A Republican Congress should launch a select committee … to get to the bottom of Big Tech’s 2020 interference. Let’s find out who made the decision to censor the Joe and Hunter Biden corruption bombshell, which the pollsters said amounted to about 15 points, the largest illegal campaign contribution in American history.”

He continued, “And let’s do a full forensic audit of the $417 million given by [Facebook cofounder] Mark Zuckerberg, who used to come to the White House and kiss my a**, that they spend to take over local election offices in key Democrat counties. And I believe you’re going to be hearing a lot of it.”

He said, “We need a full accounting of all of the illegitimate turnout efforts, illegal drop boxes, and ballot harvesting that’s taken place. You know, we had drop boxes 97% for Joe Biden.”

Just the News documented, “Authorities, including some in GOP-run states, have reported not finding evidence of widespread election-altering voter fraud in the November 2020 election. However, several states have acknowledged serious irregularities or unlawful changes to election rules did occur in 2020.”
