IMPOSSIBLE: Did Maricopa County Lose 291,930 Election Day Votes, Or Did they Gain Votes? – Sock Puppet Account Claims Indies Went for Hobbs – When Dems Had Only 17% ED Turnout – UPDATED

This is interesting.

We will update this as we gather more information.

Maricopa County originally announced that on Election Day over 540,000 voters visited one of the 223 vote anywhere centers in the county.

Maricopa County posted this announcement online.

Here is the original statement from Maricopa County, via AZ Family:

Original Statment — Maricopa County Response 11-27-2022 on Election Totals by Jim Hoft on Scribd

But then when the votes were counted Maricopa County announced that 248,070 Election Day ballots were counted.

Somewhere along the way Maricopa County lost 291,930 votes based on their own reporting.

UPDATE: (November 30)  Since our report Maricopa County officials, who are known for switching their talking points, now say the number 540,000 included ED voters and ED dropoffs.

Here is their new explanation

According to the Maricopa County Elections Department, more than 540,000 voters visited a vote center on Election Day to cast a ballot in person or drop off their early ballots.

On Nov. 28, county officials voted unanimously to certify the election results, which resulted from 1.56 million voters casting 2022 midterm ballots. Those certified results included the following breakdown:

  • Verified and counted Election Day ballots: 248,070
  • Verified and counted Election Day provisional ballots: 2,954
  • Verified and counted early ballots: 1,311,734

Another interesting fact. The Uplift company, a Democrat-leaning ballot tracking firm, reported that 966,656 early ballots were returned before Election Day. This is significantly less than what the county reported.

The company does an excellent job tracking early voting. It is interesting their number is lower than the county’s official number.

There are several questions that must still be answered about these numbers.

Republicans had more registered voters than Democrats this cycle.

And don’t forget this from an earlier post…

As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier
Despite Only 17% Democrat Turnout on Election Day – Katie Hobbs and Democrats Are Winning Over 50% of Maricopa County Election Day Totals

On Election night at 8 PM Uplift Data released its final hourly results on the Arizona and Maricopa County elections.

Throughout the election cycle, Uplift posted the latest updates on mail-in ballot counts on its website as ballots arrived in the weeks leading up to Election Day. This was a great tool for Democrats to understand the real-time results. On Election Day Uplift tracked the hourly reported results from precincts across Maricopa County.

When the polls closed at 8:00 PM MT Uplift released its final analysis from the day.

Maricopa County turnout numbers on Election Day at 8:00 PM:

Republicans received 52.7% of the vote.
“Other” received 30.7% of the vote.
Democrats received 16.6% of the vote.

The “other” category is likely independent voters leaning Republican and Republican voters who refuse to talk to liberal pollsters.

Here is the Uplift final vote count chart for Maricopa County on Election Day:

So, again, according to Uplift Data tracking service Republicans had 52.7% of the vote on Election Day.

Democrats had 16.6% of the vote on Election Day.

USA Today reported on Wednesday, Nov. 9 that Kari Lake won 70% of the Election Day vote.

Since Tuesday night Maricopa County has slow-walked their actual results to the press.

Katie Hobbs has won every ballot drop, except two, from Maricopa County since Tuesday extending her lead over Kari Lake by 34,000 votes.

Katie Hobbs won more Election Day votes in the Thursday and Friday ballot drops.

Kari Lake won 51.8% of the 85,000 Maricopa ballots on Saturday night.

On Sunday, Kari Lake won 54% of the 97,000 Maricopa ballots on Sunday night.

Maricopa County election officials want you to believe that ALL of the independent voters on election day voted Democrat in Maricopa County.
