740,000 Ballots Have No Documented Chain of Custody.
Verity Vote conducted an investigation of Maricopa County’s ballot chain of custody for the 2020 General Election. County records show problematic retrieval of early voting ballots from vote centers and drop box locations. Numerous violations of Arizona election law are revealed.
The violations identified are important because failure to maintain chain of custody and properly document ballot retrieval and transport makes it impossible to verify the origin of the ballots counted in an election. Arizona Law outlines specific requirements for secure ballot retrieval and chain of custody procedures for the transfer of voted ballots from drop boxes and vote centers to the central tabulators. Maricopa County officials violated Arizona law and do not have the required chain of custody for at least 740,000 ballots.
