Most research into election fraud began in the six battleground or swing states, yet after numerous other states reported integrity issues the research has widened. We’re hoping to expand our coverage to every state in the US. The sections below outline what we know so far about California.


Election Integrity Scorecard

The Heritage Foundation’s Election Integrity Scorecard is an assessment of each state’s voting laws, written regulations and procedures. California was ranked 49th out of 51.

California's Total Score 30%
Voter ID Implementation 20%
Accuracy of Voter Registration Lists 63%
Absentee Ballot Management 10%

It’s important to note that the scores above reflect the laws, regulations, and processes that exist within the state, but not whether they were actually followed. In the 2020 election, some states with highly-rated election integrity measures did not uphold them. 1 As The Heritage Foundation reminds us, even the best laws are not worth much unless responsible officials enforce them rigorously. It is up to the citizens of each state to make sure that their elected and appointed public officials do just that.

Election Integrity Report

In March 2021, a team of scientists from produced the report “2020 Presidential Election Contrast Analysis” which lists California as the state with the highest number of unexpected Biden votes (by a huge margin).

Seth Keshel’s Trend Analysis

Former US military intelligence officer and statistical analyst Seth Keshel analyzed the trends of voter registrations versus actual votes and discovered alarming anomalies in a number of counties, ones that defy typical historical trends. He has published a report for every state, indicating which counties’ vote counts align with the trend in voter registrations and which have small or large divergences.

Seth Keshel County Trend Map for California

Chart legend: Red = Rampant Fraud, Yellow = Likely/Suspect, Green = Clean

Trump votes Biden votes Other votes
Officially reported results 6006429 (34.3%) 11110250 (63.5%) 384922 (2.2%)
Estimate of potential fraud 1346000 (7.7%)
Estimate of actual result
(with fraud removed)
6006429 (37.2%) 9764250 (60.4%) 384922 (2.4%)

Seth estimates that there may be approximately 1,346,000 votes for Biden in excess of what California registration trends would indicate — a possible indicator of fraud. Counties with the greatest number of excess votes deserve closer inspection.

Seth has listed California’s Fresno, Kern, Orange, and San Bernardino counties as being among the Nation’s Top 100 Worst Counties in terms of abnormal trends during the 2020 election.

Dominion Voting Machines

California used Dominion Voting Machines in at least some counties. Numerous integrity issues have been uncovered with Dominion.

Learn about Dominion

The polling and tabulation equipment used for each county in the US is listed at Verified Voting, although see our disclaimer 2. They also have a detailed database including photographs of the various models of voting equipment. Note that the polling and ballot marking equipment is different to the scanning and tabulation equipment — both need to be highly secure, and in most cases are not.

Voting machines and computerized tabulation equipment have introduced many vulnerabilities and avenues for manipulation in elections. Cybersecurity experts tell us that there is no such thing as a fully secure computer system, and the more complex our voting systems and election systems get, with more moving parts and connections, the more impossible it will be for any state or county to defend against a nation-state-level threat. Local counties running elections can no longer defend against these motivated and well-funded foreign nations. The efficiency gains brought by machines are not reason enough to tolerate the loss of security, accountability, and transparency.

Elections need to return to paper ballots and mechanical or hand counting to minimize the threat of cyber attacks and manipulation by fraud. Let your state representative, county clerk, county commissioners, and Secretary of State know your opinion about this.

The Arizona Ballot Integrity Project is one such initiative promoting new, ultra-secure paper ballots with state-of-the-art security features to prevent fraud and help restore faith in elections. Learn more about the initiative.

2021 Governor Recall Election

During this election on September 14, there were numerous issues reported, including:

  1. Voters turning up at polling places and being told they had already voted 3

  2. Torrance Police recovered more than 300 unopened California recall election ballots inside the vehicle of a suspect who was found passed out in his car, along with a gun and drugs 4

  3. Holes in ballot envelopes that allowed someone to see who the vote was for 5

  4. The ability to shine a torch through the ballot envelope and see who the vote was for 6

  5. 400,000 votes disappeared from the counts during CNN’s live coverage 7

  6. Mail-in ballots being sent to people who no longer live in California and multiple ballots being sent to people 8

Analyst Draza Smith also reported mathematical patterns in the ballot counts that, like the 2020 election, appear to demonstrate the presence of computer algorithms controlling and manipulating the results. Read her initial reports.

It’s also notable that several “election experts” including Harri Hursti (the cybersecurity consultant featured in the Kill Chain and Hacking Democracy documentaries, and auditor of the Windham, New Hampshire election) proposed that the election undergo a risk-limiting audit, even before the election was underway. They raised concerns that since Dominion’s election software was leaked from Colorado, this may pose a risk to California’s elections. 9 Risk-limiting audits select a small batch of ballots to manually review. Unfortunately these types of audits are vulnerable to the selective choosing of “clean” batches where fraud can remain hidden. Being performed by Democrats, these audits are often unlikely to investigate the kinds of election issues that concern Republicans.

California voters are encouraged to verify the status of their recent votes via the California Secretary of State Voter Status Page and also via BallotTrax and immediately report any irregularities.

Get Involved

Volunteers are needed to help verify the irregularities found. One key way this is done is through voter canvassing, with teams analyzing the county and state records and voter rolls, and others going door-to-door to identify whether the records match the actual residents living at the address.

In most states, the certified election results are available from the Secretary of State or State Board of Elections. Check their website for details. States are also required by HAVA law to inform the public of how many absentee ballots were both sent and received to uniformed services and overseas voters.
Voter Registration Rolls/Database
Currently unknown

In some states, these are freely available from the Secretary of State or State Board of Elections. Check their website. In other states, voter rolls must be purchased and/or accessed via a signed legal agreement. Some officials are also obstructing access to the rolls, to make auditing difficult. Let us know via Telegram or via the comment section below if you experience issues.

Footnotes & References

  1. Looking at the nationwide trends over the 2020 election, it became commonplace to stretch or completely ignore the laws for absentee/mail-in ballot eligibility, bulk ballot collection, independent observation, voter ID, signature verification, citizenship verification, removal of inactive/ineligible voters from rolls, voting machine accreditation, retention of election records, transparency of operations, and numerous other laws. Most breaches have not yet been prosecuted. 

  2. Verified Voting has some useful information on their website, however we feel the need to caution visitors about the partisan ties and Democrat influence within the organization. According to The Gateway Pundit: 10

    • Barbara Simons, Board Chair of Verified Voting, was appointed by top-ranking Democrats (Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and later Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer) to the seemingly-corrupt and powerful U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

    • Mark Lindeman, Co-Director of Verified Voting, openly opposed the Maricopa Forensic Audit, yet was chosen to perform the criticized Windham NH Audit.

    • Verified Voting also appear to have hidden the fact that cybersecurity consultant and New Hampshire election auditor Harri Hursti was previously a member of the organization, with all mention of him removed from their website two days after being selected for the audit, without explanation.

    Utilize the VV website with these questionable issues in mind.
