NEW: Long Withheld Records Reveal More than 20,000 Mail Ballots Received After the Legal Deadline in Maricopa County
A new Maricopa County 2020 election report from Verity Vote used public records requests to discover that more than 20,000 ballots were illegally counted.
Originally appeared on Gateway Pundit
Arizona’s 2020 Presidential Election was decided by less than 10,500 votes.
After numerous records requests and months of waiting for responses, Verity Vote found that Maricopa County received and counted tens of thousands of ballots after the election day deadline.
This finding was not mentioned in the Arizona Attorney General’s interim report on election fraud.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Attorney General Mark Brnovich released a report on the evidence of voter fraud in Maricopa County, yet he still has done nothing about it. The Attorney General also reported document production troubles and the County’s repeated failure to comply with requests.
A previous report by Verity Vote discovered that Maricopa County failed to record the number of ballots on 1,514 out of 1,895 unique chain of custody documents and failed to record signatures on 48 of these documents. This resulted in 740,000 ballots missing proper chain of custody documentation. The Arizona Attorney General’s report undercalculated this number of ballots by over 500,000.
Arizona Law requires that all ballots be received by the county no later than 7pm on Election Day in order for them to be counted and valid1. However, review of Maricopa County 2020 General Election records shows that more than 20,000 ballots were transported from the United States Postal Service (USPS) after that deadline.
Verity Vote obtained delivery receipts from the county that show USPS ballots were re ceived on November 4, 5 and 6. Any ballots not rejected are accepted by default and tabulated into the election results. Arizona law is clear that it is not an issue of the ballot postmark but the receipt of the ballot by the county prior to 7pm on Election Day.\
