(Worthy News) – U.S. President Joe Biden prematurely claimed victory in the battleground state of Arizona as ineligible ballots, and election mishandling encompassed hundreds of thousands of votes, according to a canvassing report obtained by Worthy News.
The report was based on months of investigations by the grassroots “Voter Integrity Project” in Maricopa County, Arizona’s largest county, with more than 4.4 million people.
Then U.S. President Donald J. Trump allegedly lost the 2020 presidential race in Arizona by just 10,457 votes, but Wednesday’s report questioned those results.
Exactly “173,104 votes are missing or lost,” said the extensive report citing “volunteers who went door to door verifying registration and voting information for thousands of residents.”
The lost votes came from “American citizens living in Maricopa County who cast a vote, primarily by mail, in the election. And yet, there is no record of their vote with the county. And it was not counted in the reported vote totals for the election,” the report claimed.
Additionally, some “96,389 mail-in votes” were reportedly cast under the names of registered voters who moved or were unknown to those living there.
These “ghost” voters “were either unknown to the residents of the registration address or were verified as having moved away prior to October 2020,” the canvassing report’s authors added.
The authors, therefore, “render the 2020 General Election in Maricopa County uncertifiable.”
Trump has been a strong opponent of mail-in ballots, expressing concerns about possible fraud. Most other developed nations either ban or restrict mail-in votes, according to a Worthy News assessment. But Biden and his Democratic Party supporters backed mail-in balloting due to “concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.”
Liz Harris, who lost a race for the Arizona Legislature in November, led the canvassing effort in America’s fourth most populous county since December.
She said she began mobilizing thousands of volunteers going door-to-door to speak with voters in Maricopa County after discovering that even dead voters ‘cast’ ballots.
Critics within the U.S. Justice Department have claimed canvassing could amount to voter intimidation. However, the authors of the report deny wrongdoing.
“These results are a travesty to our democracy and our voting rights,” they wrote, adding that the outcomes also impacted other elections held at the same time.
“In addition to impacted local races, such as [for the ] Maricopa County Board of Supervisors District 1, decided by 403 votes, key statewide race margins are well within the numbers shown above,” the report stressed.
“The Presidential race was decided by 10,457 votes statewide. And the U.S. Senate election was decided by 78,886 votes statewide,” the report concluded.
It was not immediately clear what, if anything authorities would do with the findings.
But with the president declining in the opinion polls, the report was due to raise questions about voting procedures in Arizona and other states where the frail Biden was declared the winner.
