Election Workers’ Sworn Affidavits Accuse Maricopa County Employee Who Donated To Mark Kelly Of Election Rule Violations On Election Day

Maricopa County Chairman Bill Gates

According to observations and signed affidavits, three poll workers and an election marshal who worked at the same Maricopa County voting center on Election Day witnessed concerning issues and irregularities at the hands of Maricopa County employees.

The Gateway Pundit reported on the serious problems in Maricopa County’s General Election on November 8. Tabulators were down, printers ran out of ink, and long, long lines kept voters waiting to cast their ballots. Many were prevented from voting altogether due to extremely long wait times.

Maricopa County gave instructions on Election Day, which likely contributed to this voter suppression.

A Case for Redoing the 2020 Election Now

Voters who could not tabulate their ballots were told to deposit their ballots into “box 3” or “door 3” to be tabulated later at the Elections Department in downtown Phoneix. The County claims that only 17,000 votes were affected and dropped in “box 3.”

However, Election experts and election workers later reported that these uncounted ballots were commingled with already counted ballots, leaving no way of knowing if all legal votes were counted!

Four election workers detailed similar issues at the Grace in the Desert Church in Peoria, Arizona, including ballot reconciliation issues, suspicious ballot spoiling instructions, questionable testing procedures, and potential law violations.

Each of them fingered Maricopa County’s Mark McCall for Election Day negligence and maladministration.

Mark, who was the supposed leader, was the cause of most of the issues and did nothing to correct anything that was brought to his attention,” said Cynthia Schlesinger.

Mark McCall was further accused of stuffing misread “box 3” ballots into black duffel bags instead of the designated transport bins and dropping unused tamper-evident security ties into the duffel bags. This breaks the chain of custody by potentially allowing bad actors to open these bags and reseal them without anybody knowing.

It also appears that Mark was also left alone in the tabulation center with no supervision. It is unclear whether or not there were live ballots in the room.

“When Mark would spoil a ballot, he wouldn’t write across the printing on the back of the ballot but on the side, said Marcella Heiman, corroborating Pam Cetina’s story that “They didn’t want me writing SPOIL in the middle of the ballot and asked that when the customer was done with it, to find him/her.”

Two poll workers reported that when they brought concerns to McCall’s attention, he joked about the County firing him for his incompetence or malfeasance. According to the affidavits, Mark joked to poll workers, “oh well, they can fire me” and “oh well, they might fire me.”

McCall’s LinkedIn page shows us that he is a Learning and Development Manager in human resources at Maricopa County.

After a further look, FEC filings show that McCall has made numerous small-dollar donations to Mark Kelly’s reelection to the US Senate.

The Gateway Pundit called Mark McCall for comment, and he told us, “you can call the County Attorney’s Office if you want to speak to anything about the election.”

Below are signed declarations from Uncover DC accusing Mark McCall of maladministration and potential law violations at the polling location he was assigned.

Uncover DC reported that “none of these poll workers knew each other prior to working on Election Day.”

Pam Cetina: I looked over the ballots carefully when the voters came back to spoil their ballots and could see no reason why they were being rejected. I finally went and found Mark McCall, our Inspector, and asked him what was going on; he just acted like it was no big deal. I spoke to others on our team, and they all knew this wasn’t normal. Even the customers were becoming suspicious, asking if this was going to be another 2020. Yami [Martinez], who is a[n] employee of the county and works directly with Mark McCall, would often hover in our area listening to what was going on. They didn’t want me writing SPOIL in the middle of the ballot and asked that when the customer was done with it, to find him/her, and he would take care of it. Yami [Martinez] was also working as a clerk. I started telling voters if they had any more problems to come back to me, and I would print another ballot for them.

Susan Hellwig: Mark McCall, our inspector and Yamille Rodriguez, his HUB employee were holding up the line and preventing voters from entering our site to vote when site books and voting stations were available. Because of this, I started counting the voters at the site books, voters waiting for ballots to be printed and the open voting stations, and announcing how many voters could enter.

When there was less than 45 minutes or so minutes left to vote, I went outside for the 2nd time to give a pep talk and Mark my inspector followed me. I enthusiastically told all of the voters waiting in line thank you for their patience and that they would be able to vote and please don’t get out of line because after 7 o’clock announcement no one not in line would be able to vote. I also asked the voters to pass the information along to anyone else who arrived later.

On Sunday, Mark stated that all the early mail in ballots had been counted and that despite that we would not know the results of the election until the end of the month. Sadly, none of us challenged that. We also didn’t challenge him when he started talking about election deniers and that everyone would be able to vote.

Also, there was an issue on Monday night closing, the ballot paper count could not be reconciled, I have no idea how Mark handled that incident.

Cynthia Schlesinger: On the morning of 11/8/2022 before we opened the doors the tabulators should have been tested, but the inspector Mark McCall (he is employed by Maricopa County in Human Resources Training) said we don’t have to as they were tested last night. 

Mark said there was 767 ballot paper in the box, there should have been much less as we had more than 30 voters and test prints, so this makes Mark a liar. When we brought this to his attention his response was “oh well, they can fire me”!

On Tuesday morning Mark signed us in but we were not sworn in, this against the rules as stated soon page 67.

The mail-in ballots that were dropped off, were left in the collector box overnight when they should have been picked up.

As the day progressed, Mark spent more time outside just speaking with people in line, the poll workers had to keep going outside to get him for assistance.

At the close of day, Mark the Inspector did not follow the correct process for ballots and misreads out of door 3, as these should have been placed in the white envelope to be sealed and put in the blue transport container, instead he instructed someone to put them in the black duffle bag with the tabulators and tabulated tapes, he also dropped in 3 unused security ties and sealed the bag.

Myself along with Yamille delivered all the mail in ballots that were never picked up, and I asked Mark 3 times during the day to call to have them picked up. When we arrived at the drop off site the containers and duffle bags were removed and we both had to sign the receipt, I was given a copy as was Yamille but she pulled mine from my hand and said Mark gets them, I have no idea where they are not, also I watched and a fellow cut the seal, and look in the bag, I was about to question why, but Yamille quickly drove off, that seal should never have been cut.

There were many inconsistencies done on Monday and Tuesday, and Mark who was the supposed leader was the cause of most of the issues and did nothing to correct anything that was brought to his attention.

Marcella A. Heiman: When our inspector, Mark McCall, counted the ballot paper at the end of the evening, the count was 767 out of 800. With test prints the day before and everyone we had to go through, that number was incorrect and he knew it. What was troublesome to me was he just said oh well, they might fire me, in a joking manner.

We left for the day, Mark left 10 minutes after we did. Be advised there was a lockbox on the door and an alarm code that was given to Mark by the custodian of the church on Sunday afternoon.

The next morning when we arrived, Mark was already in the building, we clocked in and asked when we would test the tabulators. He stated he tested them the night before, seemed off to me, especially if the other party wasn’t there for the test. No one witnessed the test. The Oath was not given that day.

When Mark would spoil a ballot, he wouldn’t write across the printing on the back of the ballot but on the side. This is not how it is supposed to be done.

When we closed after the election, Mark was having us do certain tasks, breaking down booths, site books, sweeping, emptying trash, etc. Judges were assigned to the tabulators, Mark was doing paperwork. I knew it was our job to break down the equipment so I didn’t think much about it. We were tired and wanted to finish up. One judge said she saw the totals and Kari Lake’s team numbers were 500 for Lake to 100 for Hobbs. We got everything packed up and we left for the evening.

Karla, judge from the election, called me the next morning and told me about the door #3 ballots being put in the black duffel bag rather than the blue transport box and that Mark threw 3 security ties into the duffel bag. I am bringing this up because this is not what is said in the elections manual. When I was in training, the assistant director of training was saying Maricopa County Elections won two law suits because how things were spelled out in the manual. If it’s one location, it could be an error, but multiple locations, it was a plan that was made outside the rules spelled out in the manual.

Clearly, the Democrats working at polling locations were up to no good, and Maricopa County couldn’t care less. According to sworn testimony, it does not appear that Mark Kelly donor, Mark McCall, was worried he would be fired for anything.

These reports from poll workers line up with numerous stories that The Gateway Pundit has reported on regarding voter disenfranchisement and shady Election Day procedures on November 8. If you witnessed or experienced voter disenfranchisement in Arizona, visit this page to document your sworn affidavit.
