Most research into election fraud has occurred in the six battleground or swing states, until recently. We’re hoping to expand our coverage to every state in the US. The sections below outline what we know so far about Maryland.
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.
|Trump votes||Biden votes||Other votes|
|Officially reported results||976414 (32.15%)||1985023 (65.36%)||75623 (2.49%)|
|Estimate of potential fraud||128000 (4.2%)|
|Estimate of actual result
(with fraud removed)
|976414 (33.6%)||1857023 (63.8%)||75623 (2.6%)|
Seth estimates that there may be approximately 128,000 votes for Biden in excess of what Maryland registration trends would indicate — a possible indicator of fraud. Counties with the greatest number of excess votes deserve closer inspection.
Seth has listed Maryland’s Harford County as being among the Nation’s Top 100 Worst Counties in terms of abnormal trends during the 2020 election.
Electronic Voting Machines
The polling and tabulation equipment used for each county in the US is listed at Verified Voting, although see our disclaimer 1. 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.
A team of scientists from Election-Integrity.info produced the report “2020 Presidential Election Contrast Analysis” which lists Maryland as the state with the 5th highest number of unexpected Biden votes
ElectionFraud20.org has also reviewed the voting and registration trends from 2000 to 2020 and noted several anomalies in both the voter rolls and the ballot counts in Maryland, among others. Read our Maryland Case Study and the preceding articles that explain the method and the observations.
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.
Election Audit Groups on Telegram
To join the grassroots efforts in pursuing election integrity and audits of the 2020 election in Maryland, you can join the following groups on Telegram:
For other states, see our Full List of Telegram Channels.
ElectionFraud20.org has no affiliation with nor any responsibility for these channels. Discern carefully, as some users and even admins of channels have shown obstruction to transparent audits of our elections.
State Representatives Supporting Election Integrity & Audits
Following the results of the Maricopa Arizona Forensic Audit, 188 state representatives from 39 states signed a letter asking for forensic audits in all 50 states. The signatories for Maryland include:
- Delegate Dan Cox
- Delegate Jeff Ghrist
- Delegate Mark Fisher
We aim to publish links to both the raw election data and voter registration data for Maryland so that citizens and researchers can analyze this information for themselves.
|Certified Election Results||
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||
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.
|The New York Times 2020 Election Results||Results for all states, with several maps and charts.|
|Data Explorer Tool||Our own tool for inspecting the 2020 New York Times data, including the time-series data of how the counting progressed. Also provides download links for raw JSON or CSV data, including counts for every precinct and county.|
|US Election Atlas||
Detailed results for 2020 and previous years. Some data is freely accessible on their website, while some, such as detailed historic results in CSV format, are purchasable for a fee.
This appears to be the source commonly used by Seth Keshel for his analysis, although we have not officially confirmed this.
|2020 General Election Data & Research||A broad collection of national stats, vote and registration counts, time-series data, voting machine information and manuals, PDF reports, and other research collated by citizen auditors.|

Footnotes & References
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: 2
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).
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. ↩
