Montana just completed an audit and they found the strangest thing. 6.33% of all votes did not have an envelope and coincidentally those votes came from heavily Democratic districts.
By law, those votes should not be counted but they were. 4,592 out of the 72,491 mail-in ballots lacked envelopes.
In a small state such as Montana over 4,000 votes could make a lot of difference in a tight race and in local elections as well.
Rep. Brad Tschida, a Republican was approached by a group of voters. He then hired a lawyer, and that is when they asked to see all the votes and envelopes from the 2020 election, discovering all of the ballots without envelopes.
Poll workers said that some of the envelopes may have been counted twice in the heavily Democratic district. All states need to audit the election.
We keep finding Democratic votes are often over-counted
Via John Lott Jr. at Real Clear Investigations:
In November, the group approached state Rep. Brad Tschida, a Republican, to formally take up the issue. Tschida hired a lawyer involved in the group, Quentin Rhoades, to represent him in corresponding with Missoula County Elections Administrator Bradley Seaman, a Democratic appointee and a longtime supporter of progressive causes.
Seaman’s office complied with Tschida’s request for access to all of the county’s ballot envelopes, and on Jan. 4 a team of volunteers, overseen by Rhoades, conducted an audit with the assistance of the Missoula County Elections Office. The audit consisted of both a count and review of all ballot envelopes and comparing that to the number of officially recorded votes during the Nov. 3, 2020, general election.
Its conclusions were troubling: 4,592 out of the 72,491 mail-in ballots lacked envelopes— 6.33% of all votes. Without an officially printed envelope with registration information, a voter’s signature, and a postmark indicating whether it was cast on time, election officials cannot verify that a ballot is legitimate. It is against the law to count such votes.
What’s more, according to auditors, county employees claimed that during the post-election audit, some of the envelopes may have been double-counted, possibly indicating an even higher number of missing envelopes..
Now just imagine extrapolating this data nationally .., especially to large cities under the Blue thumb … this could. very well be the canary in the coal mine … stay tuned.
