Data expert Matt Braynard, who in the past worked as a member of President Donald Trump’s campaign staff, offered details about the voter fraud investigations he has worked on since the Nov. 3 election with his team.

Braynard leads the Voter Integrity Project, a collectively funded organization that was able to raise enough funds to hire people to man the phones, data analysts, and follow up on registration requests, which are now being used in election-related lawsuits.

In an interview with Just the News reporter John Solomon on Thursday, Dec. 3, Braynard explained that in light of reports initially released after the Nov. 3 election about possible voter fraud, he decided to undertake an investigation with the help of his data analysis expertise.

Braynard’s experience in the data field dates back to the 1990s, and his resumé includes positions in the political analysis department of the Republican National Committee, as well as at Election Data Services and in President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“I have a pretty intimate understanding of not how a bill is made, but how a vote is made,” said Braynard, who said he was familiar with voter registration, the different ways voters vote, and the subsequent counting of those votes.

“This is stuff I’ve been intimately familiar with, gosh, for going on 25 years now,” Braynard added.

Initially, efforts to expose the fraud led to the implementation of a mass funding campaign on the GoFundMe website, which raised more than $200,000, but was later dropped on the grounds that it was allegedly involved in electoral misinformation.

“After raising $220,000, GoFundMe eliminated our campaign to raise money for our voter fraud investigation without disbursing any funds,” Braynard wrote.

“Why would GoFundMe eliminate a direct investigation to help determine whether this is a clean election or not,” he wrote in another of his tweets. 

A subsequent fundraiser on the GiveSendGo Christian mass-funding site ended up giving the campaign hundreds of thousands of dollars.

With sufficient funds, Braynard’s team established a major calling operation to contact voters whose votes were marked as potentially suspicious.

According to Braynard, investigations revealed significant numbers of suspicious voters. His team had contact with, for example, voters “who had requested an absentee ballot, but not returned it based on the state’s data.”

He said that those who did not return an absentee ballot included a high percentage who never requested one. According to Braynard, “Forty-four percent of those people never requested the absentee ballot.”

He also indicated that they found a high percentage among those who did request the absentee ballot but never returned it.

Braynard shared that based on databases such as the National Change of Address, as well as voter records of citizens who have moved from one place to another, they found that a good number of voters could have voted in states where they did not live.

Braynard’s team found several instances of suspicious registrations including “thousands of votes in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan,” among which several had indicated a post office as their residence, something that would be against the law, Just the News reported.

Another irregular case that Braynard’s team found relates to Wisconsin voter politics, which this year generated a new dynamic in election regulations due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) or COVID-19 pandemic. This policy allowed election officials to perform tasks that were not authorized by the Legislature, such as allowing voters to cast a ballot without meeting voter identification requirements.

Braynard said his team has been talking and sharing data with the president’s legal teams and other lawyers working independently, as well as the FBI, which recently contacted Braynard and his team to review the data, he said.
