The sheriff’s office of an Arizona county highlighted in Dinesh D’Souza’s “2000 Mules” documentary on alleged ballot harvesting and trafficking in the 2020 presidential election announced Wednesday it has teamed up with the county recorder to investigate 2020 election fraud.
The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday that as of March, it has 16 open voter fraud cases.
The Sheriff’s Office and the Recorder’s Office “are working together to actively examine cases of voting fraud from the 2020 General Election and now a recent pattern of fraudulent voter registration forms leading up to the 2022 Primary Election,” according to the YCSO.
“Some examples of voter fraud Yuma County is currently seeing,” the sheriff reports, “are the following:
- Impersonation fraud: Voting in the name of other legitimate voters and voters who have died or moved away.
- False registrations: Falsifying voter registrations by either using a real or fake name, birth date, or address. This is being done by outreach groups who are paid for each registration form they submit, therefore, are out soliciting voters into unnecessarily re-registering or falsifying forms with Yuma County [residents’] identities.
- Duplicate voting: Submitting multiple votes or registering in multiple locations and voting in the same election in more than one jurisdiction or state.
- Fraudulent use of absentee ballots: Requesting absentee ballots and voting without the knowledge of the actual voter; or obtaining the absentee ballot from a voter and either filling it in directly and forging the voter’s signature or illegally telling the voter who to vote for.”
Released last week, “2000 Mules” relies on geotracking data and video surveillance footage obtained by election integrity watchdog True the Vote purporting to show hundreds of “mules” stuffing drop boxes with absentee ballots during odd hours in battleground states.
