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 New Hampshire.
Election Integrity Scorecard
The Heritage Foundation’s Election Integrity Scorecard is an assessment of each state’s voting laws, written regulations and procedures. New Hampshire was ranked equal 17th out of 51.
|New Hampshire's Total Score||64%|
|Voter ID Implementation||85%|
|Accuracy of Voter Registration Lists||53%|
|Absentee Ballot Management||76%|
|Vote Harvesting/Trafficking Restrictions||100%|
|Access of Election Observers||100%|
|Verification of Citizenship||0%|
|Identification for Voter Assistance||33%|
|Vote Counting Practices||100%|
|Election Litigation Procedures||33%|
|Restriction of Same-day Registration||0%|
|Restriction of Automatic Registration||100%|
|Restriction of Private Funding of Election Officials or Government Agencies||0%|
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.
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||365654 (45.36%)||424921 (52.71%)||15559 (1.93%)|
|Estimate of potential fraud||40000 (5.0%)|
|Estimate of actual result
(with fraud removed)
|365654 (47.7%)||384921 (50.2%)||15559 (2.0%)|
Seth estimates that there may be approximately 40,000 votes for Biden in excess of what New Hampshire registration trends would indicate — a possible indicator of fraud. Counties with the greatest number of excess votes deserve closer inspection.
Seth has listed New Hampshire’s Rockingham County as being among the Nation’s Top 100 Worst Counties in terms of abnormal trends during the 2020 election.
Windham Township, Rockingham County District 7
Following the Nov 3 election results, a hand recount was performed in Windham on Nov 12 to validate the results. They found a discrepancy of 399 votes which was the largest numerical discrepancy in New Hampshire’s senate race history. 2
Concerned citizens including Ken Eyring and Tom Murray 2 gathered grassroots support for a full audit of Windham, and Bill 43 was presented to the state legislature.
- Either Harri Hursti, Ron Rivest (MIT), or Andrew Appel (picked by Secretary of State)
- Either Retired Colonel Phil Waldron, or Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai
- Jovan Hutton Pulitzer
The bill was later amended (or some would say “corrupted”) to have a different three auditors: one chosen by the Board of Selectmen in Windham, another chosen collaboratively by the Secretary of State and Attorney General, and a third auditor to be selected by the first two auditors. 2 The auditors requested by the citizens were sidelined.
The Board of Selectmen selected Mark Lindeman, Co-Director of Verified Voting 4 — a choice that was hotly protested by citizens at town meetings. The Secretary of State and Attorney General selected Harri Hursti, Cybersecurity Consultant and Co-Founder of Nordic Innovation Labs. Those two then co-selected Philip B. Stark — a member of the Electoral Assistance Commission’s Board of Advisors and close associate of Hursti’s — as the third audit lead. All three had associations with Verified Voting 4, top-ranking Democrat officials, and George Soros. 2 5
Hursti famously demonstrated a memory card hack on the Diebold AccuVote OS machines back in 2006. The machines have reportedly received software updates and fixes, but the same hardware is still in use in New Hampshire, and would be a major target of the audit.
The intellectual property for these Diebold machines is now owned by Dominion Voting Systems, of which there has been significant, alarming concerns.
In April 2021, the New Hampshire Senate voted unanimously to approve Bill 43 to perform a forensic audit of Windham Township. This law authorized the audit of:
- The results of the House of Representatives, Rockingham District 7 race, from the November 3, 2020 General Election
- The ballot counting machines and their memory cards from Windham
- Hand tabulations of the ballots from the above-described race
- The recount done by the Secretary of State
- All ballots cast in the races for governor and United States senate, via hand-tallying
Strangely, Stark’s profile was removed from the EAC website sometime in December–April 6, while Hursti’s was removed from Verified Voting immediately after being selected for the audit. 7 It’s not clear if this was an attempt at hiding associations, or some benign update.
The audit found 400 ballots that were incorrectly counted, but the final report downplayed the issue as being local and unlikely to affect the rest of New Hampshire, and thus the election outcome. Since the same machines are used in 137 towns across the state, this claim has been debated.
Here is one set of results comparing the counts on Nov 3, 2020, a recount on Nov 12, 2020, and a set of four machines during the audit. Notice how the machines rarely agree on the ballot counts, with consistent errors:
The final audit report is available below, with further audit documents available from The New Hampshire Department of Justice.
Secretary of State William M. Gardner and Attorney General John M. Formella followed up with their joint report, available here.
Criticisms of the Audit
Several criticisms of the audit have been raised:
The close ties of the auditors with top-ranking Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who appointed both Stark, and Lindeman’s colleague Barbara Simons to the powerful Electoral Assistance Commission 5
The close ties of Verified Voting with George Soros’ Democracy Alliance Board 5
Harri Hursti previously attempted to warn the world about the dangers of vulnerable voting machines in the documentaries Hacking Democracy and Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections (and here’s an insightful 20min compilation of Hursti and Stark’s machine vulnerability claims) but upon their involvement in the Windham NH audit, proceeded to claim that the election appeared relatively secure and was unaffected by fraud
Memory cards used in the Nov 2020 election were “reset” (wiped) during the audit, losing valuable forensic data. Hursti and other auditors prevented concerned citizens from forensically imaging (securely copying) the memory cards prior to them being reset. The auditors further claimed that they could not themselves copy the Nov 2020 data from the cards in a secure-enough way, despite them having write-protect switches which would prevent alteration. 8
Harri Hursti invited LHS Associates President Jeff Silvestro — the company that sold the voting machines to Windham — directly onto the floor of the forensic audit, in close proximity to the Diebold AccuVote Optical Scan (AV-OS) tabulators and the removable memory cards which were used in the 2020 election, outraging Windham residents who believed he should not be involved in the audit 9
Philip B. Stark left the audit part-way through the process, leaving only two auditors, which appears to violate the SB 43 law requiring three auditors 10
The audit report focused on the “ballot folding” issue — whereby a fold in the paper through a candidate’s name could sometimes be recorded as a vote — but deflected away from the other vulnerabilities in the machines, exploitable via the memory cards
Issues with machine #2 flipping votes from one party to another (across all races, except the governor race, strangely) have not been adequately explained. 13 The auditors claimed that this was likely to be because machine #2 processed mostly absentee ballots which could likely be more Democrat-leaning, although this explanation does not explain why the governor’s race was skewed differently, nor why the non-absentee ballots failed to have a corresponding Republican-skew. 2
The auditors claimed the machines had zero possibility of any internet or phone-line access whatsoever, nor even a TCP/IP stack within the operating system, yet this appears to contradict the equipment manual which includes extensive coverage of dial-up modems designed for connecting over telephone networks. 14 8 Video footage of the machine’s internals appear to show severed wires, which may be how the networking ports were disabled at some point in time 15, although this has not been clearly explained.
Merrimack, Hillsborough County
As NH citizens made FOIA requests for the machine tapes across the state, more anomalies were discovered. Here is one from the town of Merrimack:
It shows that out of 1,738 total votes, a large percentage were irregular. 396 (22.8%) were overvotes, where the machine rejected the ballot as voting for too many candidates, and 322 (18.5%) were undervotes. Overvotes and undervotes are often excluded from the counts unless they pass a separate adjudication process (a process which can be easily manipulated).
Deeper analysis of the tapes also revealed that the machines that generated the most overvotes also demonstrated a strange flipping of Democrat-to-Republican percentages compared with other machines in the town. 13
We have yet to receive confirmation on what exactly occurred in Merrimack, but it deserves further investigation. Similar issues likely occurred across the state.
Similar to Merrimack, above, 727 (12.5%) of the votes in Claremont were flagged as overvotes and not counted. 13
Electronic Voting Machines
The polling and tabulation equipment used for each county in the US is listed at Verified Voting, although see our disclaimer 4. 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.
Voter Roll Verification Tool
In many states, anomalies are being uncovered in the voter rolls: voters not being removed when moving interstate or passing away, and fake or “phantom” voters being added to the rolls. Citizens of New Hampshire can verify their voter registration record, and the records of known addresses via the link below:
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.

We aim to publish links to both the raw election data and voter registration data for New Hampshire 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.

Footnotes & References
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. ↩

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: 5
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.
