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 Virginia.
Election Integrity Scorecard
The Heritage Foundation’s Election Integrity Scorecard is an assessment of each state’s voting laws, written regulations and procedures. Virginia was ranked 16th out of 51.
|Virginia's Total Score||65%|
|Voter ID Implementation||70%|
|Accuracy of Voter Registration Lists||77%|
|Absentee Ballot Management||67%|
|Vote Harvesting/Trafficking Restrictions||0%|
|Access of Election Observers||100%|
|Verification of Citizenship||50%|
|Identification for Voter Assistance||67%|
|Vote Counting Practices||33%|
|Election Litigation Procedures||0%|
|Restriction of Same-day Registration||100%|
|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||1962430 (44.0%)||2413568 (54.1%)||84765 (1.9%)|
|Estimate of potential fraud||217000 (4.9%)|
|Estimate of actual result
(with fraud removed)
|1962430 (46.2%)||2196568 (51.8%)||84765 (2.0%)|
Seth estimates that there may be approximately 217,000 votes for Biden in excess of what Virginia registration trends would indicate — a possible indicator of fraud. Counties with the greatest number of excess votes deserve closer inspection.
Seth has listed Virginia’s Chesterfield, Loudoun, and Spotsylvania counties as being among the Nation’s Top 100 Worst Counties in terms of abnormal trends during the 2020 election.
Dominion Voting Machines
Virginia used Dominion Voting Machines in at least some counties. Numerous integrity issues have been uncovered with 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.
Strange Anomalies with Ballot Counting
The graph of ballot counting for the election exhibits some highly strange activity:
It shows Biden initially losing the in the state, but after some uncharacteristically steep increases, he overtakes Trump, followed by votes getting removed and readded twice (why were votes being removed from the counts?), resulting in a huge lead over Trump. This activity appears highly questionable and deserves further investigation.
Bloated Voter Rolls
In Oct 2020, a month before the election, Judicial Watch released a study that found 353 US counties in 29 states had voter registration rates exceeding 100% of the eligible voting-age citizens.
In Virginia the following counties exceeded 100%:
Loudoun County (116%); Falls Church City (114%); Fairfax City (109%); Goochland County (108%); Arlington County (106%); Fairfax County (106%); Prince William County (105%); James City County (105%); Alexandria City (105%); Fauquier County (105%); Isle of Wight County (104%); Chesterfield County (104%); Surry County (103%); Hanover County (103%); New Kent County (103%); Clarke County (103%); King William County (102%); Spotsylvania County (102%); Rappahannock County (102%); Albemarle County (101%); Stafford County (101%); Northampton County (101%); Poquoson City (100%); Frederick County (100%)
While this could be a symptom of poor clean-up of voter rolls — where voters that have died or moved interstate are left on the rolls for extended periods of time — it creates significant opportunity for fraudulent ballots to be submitted under the names of expired voters, making them appear legitimate. This was made even easier with the prevalence of mail-in ballots and widespread abandonment of voter ID rules which occurred in many states during the 2020 election.
The door-to-door canvassing across numerous states is proving that “phantom votes” were indeed counted for certain voters who were registered but did not themselves submit a ballot.
Research is also underway to explore disconcerting cases in some states whereby voter rolls appear to have been deliberately padded with false, duplicated, or expired records, possibly for the purpose of providing cover for fraudulent ballots. This is evidenced by graphing the changes to voter rolls over time and observing patterns which appear algorithmically-generated rather than organic, and then drilling down to identify specific anomalous records. We hope to release more findings on these anomalies in the coming weeks.
Alleged Interference from Mark & Priscilla Zuckerberg
Multiple reports 3 4 5 6 7 8 accuse charities supported by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife of illegally influencing the 2020 presidential election in multiple states, including Virginia. Through their donations of $400 million into charities like The Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), millions poured into the key swing states of Michigan 9, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, Georgia, Nevada, as well as Texas, North Carolina, and Virginia, in violation of federal law. 6
25 out of the 26 cities and counties that received at least $1 million from CTCL were won by Biden in 2020. 4
Here are the 10 largest CTCL grants in Virginia and who won each county in 2020: 4
Having paid poll workers in one district and only minimal volunteers in Republican districts added to the disparity while counting the votes, which could lead to inaccurate tallies.
As of March 2022, twelve states have either banned or severely restricted the acceptance and use of private funds for state and local elections: AZ, AK, FL, GA, ID, IN, KS, MS, ND, OH, TN, and TX. Another 5 states have passed anti-Zuckerbucks legislation that is awaiting a Republican governor’s signature: AL, OK, SD and VA. We’re hoping that more will soon follow suit.
Voting Trend Anomalies
In our series of articles on election trend analysis, we identified the following statistical outliers for Virginia which deserve further investigation. Visit the linked articles to learn more.
|⚠️||Biden’s Vote Gains Far Surpassing Obama’s||The increase in Democrat votes in Virginia in 2020 far surpassed the increase achieved in Obama’s successful campaign in 2008. This seems unusual.|
|⚠️||High Democrat Vote Gain||The state of Virginia displayed one of the highest Democrat vote gains in the nation in 2020, compared with the previous 2 elections.|
A team of scientists from Election-Integrity.info produced the following reports:
wwrkds.net has also published several statistical analysis reports on Virginia, looking at voter turnout rates vs winning margins, and generating heatmaps (“fingerprints”) to identify anomalies
November 2021 Election
Anomalies continued during the November 2021 election in Virginia. Here’s one eyewitness testimony:
My wife and I went for early voting in Virginia today, and something very disturbing happened.
We were both told we couldn’t vote since we had requested and been sent absentee ballots. Since we had done nothing of the sort, we “raised hell” and they finally produced affidavits we could sign saying that we had lost the ballots we requested. We demanded affidavits saying that we had never requested absentee ballots and absentee ballots had never been received by us. We were told there was no such thing. We could either sign the affidavits saying we had lost the ballots we had requested or go home without voting. We signed.
During the time we were there and engaged in this dispute, a matter of about fifteen minutes, I overheard three other people going through exactly the same thing.
We live in a heavily Democrat-controlled precinct in a Democrat-controlled state in which the Republican candidate for governor is running even with the Democrat candidate. A not-inconsiderable number of people in just one precinct during a very brief period of time were complaining that the voter rolls showed they had requested and received absentee ballots they did not request or receive.”

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.

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: 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).
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.
