Original Post: Dr. John Lott talked to John Hines about the audit of mail-in envelopes in Missoula County, Montana. The Missoula audit examined all the envelopes of the ballots and compared that to the number of officially recorded voters in the county. That compares to the 100 envelopes examined in Maricopa County, Arizona and the 10% of the envelopes examined in Cobb County, Georgia. Only by examining all the envelopes was it possible to ascertain that there was discrepancy between the number of envelopes and the number of votes officially counted.
The audit found that 4,592 out of all 72,491 mail-in ballots did not have envelopes – 6.33% of the total. A smaller, random set of mail-in ballots were checked for other problems. Fifty-five did not have dates, and fifty-three did not have their signatures checked. That’s 108 mail-in ballots out of a total of 15,455 — or a rate of 0.7%. All this means that at least 7.03% of Missoula County’s votes had problems.
Several close races in Missoula this year could have been affected by these fraudulent votes. Only 190 votes determined the winner of House District 96. The margin in District 94 was 435 votes.
If this problem occurred in past years, vote fraud in Missoula County might have determined some statewide elections. Missoula is the second largest county in the state. In 2012, the Democrat Superintendent of public education won the race by 2,231 votes. Steve Bullock won the gubernatorial election that year by just 7,571 votes.

Here are their claims about what violates “Community Standards.”
Here is the appeal that we sent YouTube.
This doesn’t violate any of the types of content rules that you all list. Neither the video nor the research that it was based on discussed either the 2016 or 2020 or any other presidential elections, and Montana, where the audit of the votes was done, hasn’t been a swing state in any presidential race for decades. No presidential candidate is mentioned. Only local races in Missoula County may have been effected.
