A newly released email from Maricopa County Elections Assistant Director Kelly Dixon confirms the Sharpiegate scandal.
We learned on Wednesday that the Arizona audit discovered ballots were printed incorrectly and on thin paper stock that allows for ink bleed-throughs.
In an email dated October 22, 2020, Dixon writes to notify election clerks that they must issue ballpoint pens every day prior to Election Day.
“We NEED to use markers on Election Day,” she writes.
Why did they only use markers on Election Day?
Jennifer Asper shared an image of this letter to Twitter, originally shared by Garret Lewis and swept under the rug by the media.
Lewis: CAUGHT! Maricopa County Elections Worker Kelly Dixon ordered her staff to use ballpoint pens for early voting from 10/23-11/2. They NEED to use markers on Election Day. Why? The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors need to see this and call for a full audit. RT and share!
Asper: Busted! They knew most Trump voters would wait to vote on Election Day. #SharpieGate
Maricopa County: Hi Amazing Troubleshooters!
Firat and foremost I want to thank you all for supporting this historic election. From my seat in the Command Center today, I finally had the chance to marvel at all the numbers and feel unbelievably grateful for all of you working so hard in support of Democracy Thanks isn’t good enough, but THANKS!!
Next, we’ve heard you and we know youre hearing issues and concerns about the Sharpie Markers. Starting tomorrow, 10/23 and through 11/2m we are asking that Clerks hand voters BALLPOINT PENS ather than markers. We NEED to use Markers on Election Day, but for now and through 11/2, hand voters a Ballpoint Pen. You have plenty of pens in your supplies right now.
Please message this to your inspectors and ensure they can cascade this change down to everyone on the Board.
The Gateway Pundit reported 2 days after the election that Arizona ballot instructions read, “Do NOT use a sharpie type pen as it will bleed through.”
We also know that Arizona was not the only state to see the Sharpiegate conspiracy.
Every day prior to election day they used the correct pens but the day they knew Trump’s voters would turn out in record numbers, they changed it.
They knew markers would cause discrepancies on our ballots.
The Elections Directors responsible for these demands belong in prison!
