Over 350,000 “high propensity” Republican voters in Arizona have not had their votes tabulated yet, according to a Maricopa County election observer.
Election integrity expert Gina Swoboda made the bombshell claim on the Charlie Kirk Show Friday afternoon.
“Maricopa County gave us a readout this morning via our legal observers that the 292,000 Election Day drop offs have completed signature verification, but have not yet begun to go to adjudication, so that’s group one,” Swoboda explained.
“Then you have 12 thousand of the 17,000 that were in [ballot box] 3 that have started to be tabulated today, so that gets you to 300,000,” she continued.
Around 7 percent of ballots, or around 17,000, were impacted by printer issues on Election Day, and voters were given the option to place their votes in “ballot box 3.”
Kirk reported that those votes will be run through the tabulators tonight.
Maricopa County Elections is now reporting that 2 vote centers with commingled ballots from "Box 3/Door 3" and will be running them all through tabulators tonight.

Swoboda said another group of 30 to 40 thousand ballots were cast on Election Day under an emergency provision to be counted.
Voters who were distrustful of the system and brought their ballots in on Election Day, rather than mailing them in, are believed to be heavily Republican.

“The layman’s explanation of the ‘bombshell’ is that there are SIGNIFICANTLY more Republican ballots that we expected that have still yet to be counted,” Lake’s campaign explained in a tweet.

(Hopefully, in the next 24 hours. ⌚)
These are reliable in red votes.
Our confidence level has only risen.
