Ann Orth told Arizona lawmakers that she was blocked from the room where mail-in ballot signatures were being verified. Orth was a poll observer and was escorted out.

She said she saw just one person working alone even though state law requires each party have representation as well as poll observers.

According to Orth’s story, she had to observe 34 election workers simultaneously. There were 30,000-35,000 early ballots processed in the five hours Ourth was in Pima County. Around 2,000 ballots needed to be correct, but Orth was blocked once again from entering the room where error ballots were fixed.

Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai talked about the curve of voting outcome in Maricopa County. He said his computer attempted 100,000 ways to perfectly reproduce the voting totals actually cast. Only one model fit perfectly — and it weighted all Democrat votes at 130 percent and Trump’s votes at -30 percent.

Dr. Shiva said the “weighted race feature” dates back to 2000 and allows a candidate’s votes to be increased or decreased by a certain percentage.

Matt Braynard, another data analyst, said he believes there were 5,700 votes in Maricopa County that were cast by people who are not legal residents of the state. And there are 14 more counties that have not been analyzed.
