Former US military intelligence officer and statistical analyst Seth Keshel analyzed the trends of voter registrations versus actual votes. The following report indicates which counties’ vote counts align with the trend in voter registrations and which have small or large divergences. Each county is flagged as red, yellow, or green, based on whether the 2020 vote totals aligned with the expected trends (as past decades demonstrate they typically do), or if they diverged in statistically unlikely ways.

Seth Keshel County Trends for Kansas

Trump votes Biden votes Other votes
Officially reported results 771406 (56.2%) 570323 (41.5%) 31608 (2.3%)
Estimate of potential fraud 48000 (3.5%)

771406 (58.2%) 522323 (39.4%) 31608 (2.4%)

Kansas is quite a bit worse off than Nebraska, with most of the talk focusing on Johnson County, which voted Democrat for the first time since 1916! Trump won the county by 8,000 votes in 2016, despite losing 21,000 votes compared with Romney in the previous election, and if the registration totals by party are accurate, these indicated a big shift left for 2020. Trump still gained 18k back in 2020, not quite to Romney’s total (158k), but Biden’s gain is ridiculous – 54k (41%) improvement in one election cycle! In 2008 Obama gained 29k votes, but that was with a drop in Republican votes. This leads us to reason that Johnson has at least 20,000 more Biden votes than the trends suggest is reasonable.

In Sedgwick (Wichita), Trump set a record Republican vote gain for one election, only to be outpaced by a massive record Democrat gain. In Sedgwick, we estimate 15,000 more votes than would be expected. This county is a prime target for a forensic audit.

If Biden has 48,000 more votes here than he should, Trump should have won with 58.2% to Biden’s 38.0%, or 249k votes.

Best GOP county audit targets: Sedgwick, Leavenworth

Need to audit: Johnson, Shawnee


Top 100 Worst Counties

Seth has listed Kansas’s Johnson and Sedgwick counties as being among the Nation’s Top 100 Worst Counties in terms of abnormal trends during the 2020 election.

Johnson County

Johnson County appears to have approximately 20,000 excess Biden votes than would be expected. The county was flipped in 2020 for first time since 1916!

Further Analysis on Kansas

This video, featuring Seth Keshel, dives into some of the Kansas counties, starting at 15min 50sec mark.


Seth Keshel’s estimates are based on the percentage of voters who are registered to each party (where it’s possible to obtain this information) compared to the actual votes for each party. He examined these party trends over the last two decades, as well as population growth, which brought to light the strange and statistically unlikely outliers and anomalies that occurred in 2020. We explain this process, step by step, with visual examples, in our guide How to Predict Election Results Using Registration Data, so that you can investigate the numbers for yourself.

This video from Telegram also explains some of Seth’s approach to analyzing precincts.

Kansas Voting Data Dashboard

Third-party source. When viewing these dashboards it seems that you need to select a valid date range first. It does seem odd that voter registrations continue to increase in the days following the election. Is that normal? Does anyone know why people would be registering after the election? Or is that just a delay between them registering and getting added to the state’s database?

  • Steve Watkins, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, listed a postal box at a UPS store as his residence on a state voter registration form while living temporarily at his parents’ home during a 2019 municipal election. Watkins was charged with three felonies - voting without being qualified, knowingly voting with more than one advance ballot, and interfering with the investigation intending to obstruct. He entered into a diversion agreement where his prosecution will be deferred for six months. If he complies with the terms of the agreement and pays a $250 fee, the charges will be dropped. (Source)

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.
