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.

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 records 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.

It took nearly seven months to get the documents only to be informed that the documents provided “do not represent the complete universe of MC Inbound Receipt of Delivery forms from November 4, 2020.” The MC Recorder also wrote that they are unable to produce the other documents because they, “cannot be certain, but we believe that the remainder of these forms were transferred to the Treasurer’s Office.” If there are indeed additional forms for 11/4 then the number of USPS late mail ballots could be much higher than 20K.

They are continuing to withhold records claiming that they are stored with the official returns. It is unclear why the Recorder would have transferred these record to the treasurer. The records in the treasurer’s custody can only be examined with a court order. Therefore, Verity Vote can only report that the minimum number is 20,500 late USPS ballot packets.

The Receipt of Delivery form has been described in detail by the Maricopa County Elections Department. (Fig.5). The County defined all of the fields on the RoD form, making it clear that the “Post Office Inbound” entry reflects the approximate number of ballot packets that are “picked up at the post office by Elections and transported to RES.” The estimated 20,500 ballot packets were recorded in that Post Office Inbound field. Notably, they were not recorded as “Lates” which the county defines as ballot packets received after election night 7PM but before the canvass (Fig.5). The County differentiates between mail ballots (MOB) and early in-person ballots (CTR) by recording the numbers on separate

Review of the form dated 11/5 shows the receipt of 1000 USPS ballots (Fig. 7). The form dated 11/6 shows an additional 1500 USPS ballots were received on that date (Fig. 8). These two records alone show that at least 2500 mail ballots were received more than two days after the Election Day 7pm deadline. After over seven months of waiting, the November 4th Receipt of Delivery form revealed that 18,000 ballots were picked up from the post office more than 12 hours after the deadline. Verity Vote has made no assumptions here, County Recorder Stephen Richer confirmed that the RoD was from 11/4 at 9:30AM.

Figure 9: Maricopa County reported picking up 18,000 ballots from the USPS on November 4th. Note that the 17,100 CTR designated ballots already in County custody are not late ballots.

The only form dated 11/3 and made available to Verity Vote through the PRR shows 7:00 USPS retrieval time but does not identify if it is AM or PM. On October 30, 2020, Katie Hobbs issued an emergency order instructing all vote centers to accept trays of ballots from the US Postal Service employees on Election Day. These extraordinary measures authorized “local turnaround” where ballots were picked up and delivered to local vote centers without ever entering the USPS processing operation. Even mail ballots that had entered processing operations were ordered to be cleared from the facility, regardless of postmark and delivered to a county vote center, bypassing standard mail flow. These expedited mail ballots were transferred from the USPS trays to vote center drop boxes on Election Day. The 18K ballots retrieved from the USPS on 11/4 is a shockingly high number considering how low the USPS ballot counts had dropped by 11/2 and 11/3.

The Gateway Pundit reported that Dinesh D’Souza and True The Vote’s new “2000 Mules” documentary exposed even more shocking evidence that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen in Arizona, and RINO Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich refuses to do anything about it.
