Williams College Mathematician Flags up to 100,000 Ballots in Pennsylvania

A professor of mathematics at Williams College, in a sworn affidavit, flagged nearly 100,000 ballots in Pennsylvania after analyzing election data and phone interviews.

Steven Miller, who specializes in analytic number theory and sabermetrics, said that one instance of possible fraud involved potential votes that weren’t counted and another instance involved ballots that may have been requested by a person other than the GOP-registered voter.

“I estimate that with a reasonable degree of mathematical certainty (based on the data I received being accurate and a representative sample of the population) the number of the 165,412 mail-in ballots requested by someone other than the registered Republican is at least 37,000, and the number of the 165,412 mail-in ballots requested by registered Republicans and returned but not counted is at least 38,910,” Miller said in a sworn statement.

Pennsylvania’s state data for early and absentee ballot requests showed 165,412 ballots requested in the names of registered GOP voters that were not counted as of Nov. 16, Miller stated. Around 18,000 people on this list were called and around 3000 answered up to four questions. These responses are used to estimate how many of these 165,412 ballots were requested by someone other than the named person, and to estimate how many of these ballots were mailed back but not received.

Elaborating to Just the News, Miller said that “almost surely, the number of ballots requested by someone other than the registered Republican is between 37,001 and 58,914,” and that “almost surely the number of ballots requested by registered Republicans and returned but not counted is in the range from 38,910 to 56,483.”

Data shows Democratic nominee Joe Biden is ahead of President Donald Trump by around 80,000 votes in Pennsylvania.

Federal Election Commission Chairman Trey Trainor, an appointee of Trump, told the news outlet that Miller’s affidavit is evidence of potential voter fraud.

“This data, which is provided by an expert witness, who would be qualified in almost any court in the country, adds to the conclusions that some level of voter fraud took place in this year’s election,” Trainor remarked. 

Miller, who was educated at Yale and Princeton, said he analyzed data from Pennsylvania’s election that was collected by Matt Braynard, who formerly worked for the Trump campaign, and conducted 2,684 voter interviews by a phone bank.

The American Mathematical Society in 2019 said Miller was included in its class of fellows “for contributions to number theory and service to the mathematical community, particularly in support of mentoring undergraduate research.”
