Thousands of Absentee Votes “Cast” by Deceased People
By checking state databases and matching voter information with death records, data researchers found that a surprisingly large number of deceased people cast absentee ballots across several key battleground states.
Richard Baris, director of Big Data Poll, alleged that about 10,000 voters whose names and dates of birth (DOB) matched death records in the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) were marked in the Michigan mail voting database as having returned ballots.
The Epoch Times reported another finding in Mr. Baris’ analysis that nearly 2,000 names are voters 100 years old or more based on their date of birth in the state database, but these people aren’t listed as known living centenarians.
In a Nov. 9 lawsuit, Robert Cushman, a Detroit poll watcher at TCF Center, stated in a sworn affidavit that thousands of mail-in ballots from people who weren’t properly registered to vote were added to vote counts. Poll operators were adding names and addresses to the poll book with made-up birth dates, such as 1/1/1900. He said in the affidavit: “When I asked what the possible justification was to counting ballots from unknown, unverified ‘persons,’ I was told by election supervisors that the Wayne County Clerk’s Office had ‘checked them out.’… When I asked about this impossibility of each ballot having the same birthday occurring in 1900, I was told that was the instruction that came down from the Wayne County Clerk’s Office.”
Gateway Pundit also conducted a study and verified that among 566,958 absentee voters in Wayne County, Michigan, over 2,000 voters were deceased. They took the public voter record (with name, home address, and date of birth), and ran it through a simple “deceased suppression” service provided for a fee by the company Lorton Data Services. “The result was that 2,060 names came back as people who are recorded as having both been dead, and having submitted an absentee ballot….The Lorton officials said that they cross-check their data with obituaries and the Social Security Death Index.”
In Pennsylvania, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani told an election hearing that they found over 8,000 confirmed dead voters successfully cast mail-in ballots by matching voter data to public obituaries.
A lawsuit filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) alleges that there are at least 21,000 dead people on Pennsylvania’s voter rolls. “Of the 21,206 dead individuals on the Commonwealth’s voting rolls as of October 7, 2020, approximately 92% died before October 2019. Nearly 10% died more than a decade ago. And just under 1% died at least two decades ago,” the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit claims that Pennsylvania failed to “reasonably maintain” their voter registration records under federal and state law and remove the ineligible voters from the official lists of eligible voters. These dead people were sent ballots and, in many cases, someone voted for them.
In May, Pennsylvania election officials admitted that duplicate ballots were mailed out to registered voters. Likewise, Judicial Watch sued Pennsylvania for allegedly having 800,000 inactive voters on their state voter rolls.
Jesse Binnall, an attorney for the Trump campaign, alleged that in Nevada, over 1,500 votes cast in the election came from dead voters, in his testimony at a U.S. Senate hearing on Dec. 16.
Nevada Records Show Deceased Voter Rose From The Grave To Cast Mail-In Ballot
The Federalist reported that the Nevada Republican Party was investigating hundreds of cases in Clark County of deceased people voting. On Oct. 9, Fred Stokes, Jr. was mailed a ballot in Clark County, Nevada, for the 2020 presidential election and the county confirmed the ballot’s receipt and marked it off as “completed.” But Mr. Stokes was found to have died at the age of 92 in June 2017. A Nevada GOP staff member visited the address shown on Mr. Strokes’ registration and was told someone else might have voted for him.
In Georgia, 10,315 dead people voted, according to an attorney for the Trump campaign. Ray Smith’s testimony at the George Senate hearing on Dec. 3.
The Miami Herald reported on Oct. 30 that Davie resident Pete Fisher received three voter registration cards with his address and names of people he didn’t know. He later found out at least two of the people were dead, and two of them were registered Republicans, but the cards listed the party affiliation as Democrat. “It looked like fraud to me,” he told the Miami Herald. “This is a serious problem.”
