A new, peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Information Warfare (JIW) confirmed a “loss of control” in New York’s voter database. The study, which was the result of an audit of voter rolls, found that there are “hundreds of thousands of illegally generated registrations in the official NYXBOE voter rolls,” according to a report from UncoverDC.
Marly Hornik, the Executive Director of the NY Citizens Audit and Andrew Paquette, Ph.D., Director of Research assembled roughly 2,000 volunteers for the effort from across the state in July 2021. Paquette submitted a paper to the JIW summarizing the findings from the NY Citizens Audit, but it was rejected the first time for “political reasons,” according to Paquette.
Paquette’s paper was eventually reviewed by three peer experts from the JIW who confirmed his analysis was correct with only “minor corrections,” Hornik said.
According to the paper, “New York State voters are assigned two identification numbers. This study has discovered strong evidence that both numbers have been algorithmically manipulated to produce steganographically concealed record attribute information.” The “secret fraudulent phantom voter infrastructure” makes tracking the manipulation difficult, Paquette explained.
“The data uncovered by NYCA’s research suggests that systemic election fraud is built into New York’s electoral records,” reads another exceprt from the report. Paquette hypothesizes that false voters were introduced to voter rolls, absentee ballots were requested by false registrants, and that fraudelent ballots were ultimately cast.
“The exact number is unknown, but it is not less than about 338,000 for registrations active for the 2020 General Election (NYCA [New York Citizens Audit] 2022). If other elections are included, the number of apparently illegal registrations jumps to between 1.2 and 2.4 million, the report states.
In one example, the audit found one fictitious identity with 22 registrations that requested multiple absentee ballots to be sent to a rented mailbox. Similar examples were also uncovered.
Algorithms were found in all 62 counties in New York. 56.93 percent of the state’s voter ID numbers were assigned based on an algorithm that allows “a hidden attribute tag to be added.”
