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 West Virginia

Trump votes Biden votes Other votes
Officially reported results 545382 (68.6%) 235984 (29.7%) 13508 (1.7%)
Estimate of potential fraud 23000 (2.9%)
Estimate of actual result
(with fraud removed)
545382 (70.7%) 212984 (27.6%) 13508 (1.8%)

Complete and total Democrat extinction. Every single county trended more Republican in registration. Have made some allowances for third party returns to Democrats, so again estimating generously. College counties are coming in heavy, lots of small counties with minor fraud likely of some sort.

Kanawha and Berkeley are the most obvious, with Democrats getting destroyed in the voter rolls yet making massive gains in the face of huge Trump gains.

Biden appears to be 23k heavy statewide.

If Biden is 23k heavy, Trump margin would be 70.6% to 27.6%, or 332k.

Best audit targets: Kanawha, Berkeley, Monongalia



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.

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.
