Is Maricopa’s VRAS System At The Center Of Voter Fraud?

The heart of Maricopa County elections is a system called VRAS, the Voter Registration Access System. Provides critical election functions such as real-time access to voter registration data, ballot and voting information, voting maps, candidate financial reports, ballot preparation and polling place management, agreements, etc. It includes a database to generate reports such as the bilingual poll workers report. Or create lists of early voter information or military voter information. Provides the data Runbeck Election Services needs to print the hundreds of different ballots for constituencies. Runbeck also packages, distributes and tracks all ballots while updating VRAS.

VRAS was built in-house, not by the Maricopa Board or its Office of Business Technology (OET). It was created years ago by skilled software developers in the small IT Department of the County Recorder’s Office. Other than their SQL database, they used very few “available parts”. Not much is known about VRAS due to this approach. In May 2019 a working group hired by MCBOS released its findings on the structure and technology of elections. He recommended updating the VRAS software “just in case there is an audit.”

Nowhere in the Report of the working group, or page 32 Election Day Report By consultant BerryDunn, system security or data breach prevention is discussed. The County Internal Audit Department also never mentions security issues in its 2018 report about Election Day activities. Could this all be a coincidence?

Unrestricted access to VRAS would be “the key to the kingdom” for those who want to manipulate the Maricopa elections. On November 5, the FBI raid a home to serve their search warrant to Elliot Kerwin, 56, an IT expert. He is charged with illegally accessing VRAS from his home in the Phoenix area. Because the FBI has been totally silent, with no leaks that Kerwin is MAGA, one can assume that this former Milwaukee resident has ties to Democrats or radical leftists. Maricopa said it only accessed publicly available information. However, did the FBI take everything electronics, including your cars?

In 2017, the IT Department released its in-house developed Sitebooks. It is part of the VRAS system that tracks in real time when ballots are issued and received. More than 500 polling places now allow voters to “register” themselves using the site books. They swipe their driver’s license or use other on-screen options. The site books connect to the VRAS servers, verify that the voter is registered and has not yet voted. Sitebooks use Mofi mobile modems with VPN connections. Show July 2020 Training Videos Site book and modem settings (image below), but oddly enough it only has 32 views. Mofi Networks is a manufacturer in Toronto, just 20 miles from the Dominion headquarters where it was founded.

If the voter verification passes, the Sitebooks notify the “Sentio” printing station to print the ballot immediately. This “ballot-on-demand” printing station includes a laptop, Sentio proprietary ballot software, and a duplex printer. Runbeck Election Services provides this configuration as a service package. The site books, laptops with printers and the VRAS system are all connected to the Internet and communicate with each other. Once the voter completes their ballot, they deposit it into a tabulating machine. This is where Dominion Election Systems takes control.

The unique thing about VRAS is that it updates almost everything in real time. If you register online to vote, you will be added to the database in minutes. Because voters must use Sitebooks on Election Day, VRAS knows who was approved, essentially it means they voted. VRAS also knows from whom absentee ballots were received. A bad actor with access to high-level VRAS could combine this voter data on Election Day. They could compare it to the voter registration database and determine the voters who did not vote. Illegal ballots can be printed with their names and injected into the system as absentee ballots or others. There are numerous ways to manipulate VRAS. They could fill VRASs of ghost voter records and delete them after the election. (Sounds familiar – Senate Hearing July 15).

If bad actors wanted to manipulate ballots or create ghost voters, certain data would be extremely useful. This includes a list of all voter applicants, especially those rejected, canceled, suspended, ineligible, or removed (think illegal aliens). You would like to know how they were registered (on paper, online or federal form) and their current status. I would want all requests for absentee voting, early voting, provisional ballots, including dates and status. Then you would need to know about the mysterious VRAS, especially its database configurations. In 2017, the Maricopa County Recorder gave Project Vote this exact data and more.

In early 2016, Democratic operatives at Project Vote sued Helen Purcell (R), the county recorder at the time. He intended to fight in court. Several months later, Democratic activist Adrian Fontes became Maricopa’s new registrar. Fontes entered a Settlement agreement with Project Vote. They received all of the Maricopa voter data along with the policy and procedure documents for the VRAS-related databases. It included an explanation for each database, its functions, fields, codes, tables, manuals, guides, and any other material used by IT staff for voter lists. Project Vote certainly shared this data with other activists. Now they are extinct, but the damage has already been done.

In his first transition team Meetings in late 2016, Adrian Fontes discussed the implementation of the electoral policies provided by the Brennan Center. Three months later, Fontes hired Rey Valenzuela as Director of Elections. Valenzuela is also the Chairman of the Standards Board for the corrupt EAC (Electoral Assistance Commission). The IT department of the former Helen Purcell recorder did an amazing job. In addition to VRAS and Sitebooks, they created kiosks and impressive GIS applications. Both systems won national awards. The IT director (Terry) behind all these innovations, and the person who keeps VRAS safe, was fired by Fontes long before the 2020 election. Fontes was replaced in January 2021, but the damage was done.
