Largest Number of Cluster Votes In Wayne Co. MI Came From Psychiatric Hospital For Patients With Severe Mental Illnesses

A data scientist examined voter data from Michigan. She looked into cluster votes in Wayne County, where hundreds of affidavits have been filed alleging irregularities. She claimed the largest number of cluster votes came from one psychiatric hospital that treats severe mental illness. But that was just the beginning of her findings.

Sarah Eaglesfield is a data scientist who has been analyzing voter data since 2012. She is a resident of the United Kingdom.

“I feel qualified to act as a totally independent and unbiased source of information. I have post-graduate level qualifications in Business Intelligence and Machine Learning, and I can put these to use to identify any potential fraud that may have occurred,” Eaglesfield said on a Go Fund Me page she started after her findings got national attention.

“I am in a position to take the rest of the year off work and undertake this analysis,” she said.

Eaglesfield’s analysis so far identifies New York, Wisconsin, Arizona, Virginia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania as states she found “errors.”

Her work on Wayne County Michigan is especially important as that county has two GOP Board Canvassers who refused to certify the vote, citing too many irregularities.

She found the largest number of cluster votes in Wayne County came from a psychiatric hospital, apartment blocks with no address numbers, and a convent. 

“The largest cluster of votes received in Wayne County was from the Walter P. Reuther Psychiatric Hospital, which provides treatment, care, and services to adults with severe mental illness. 97 patients at the facility either applied for a ballot or register as absentee voters, and 78 appeared to have returned their ballot,” Eaglesfield reported.

“Given that the psychiatric facility in question specifically states that it caters to those with severe mental illness it should be investigated what mental capacity these voters had and whether these ballots were potentially abused. It is my understanding that there is no capacity test for voting in Michigan, although state law allows for one to be applied,” she said.

Eaglesfield found several care facilities as problematic. 

“There are a large number of care centers catering for the elderly population within the county,” she wrote. “Analysis found two instances where people had died in October, but their vote was still sent and counted.

This isn’t problematic in itself, but there were a few care centers that stood out as suspicious – either through having returned all their ballots from the residents on the same day (Four Seasons Care) or through having received ballots for more than one deceased person who had previously been in their care (Hope Care.)

Apartment blocks with no address numbers. 

“The most striking thing about the Wayne Co. dataset in this regard is that there is no normalization of data in the Mailing Address field. This is a shortcoming in the software that could be abused for fraudulent purposes,” Eaglesfield said.

For example, some addresses have been written using the state abbreviation, and some with the full state name. Some have the house number contained in a separate field; some have it adjoined with the street name. In one case, the zip code field has been used to note that the address is an incorrect address.

The same issue exists in the residential address field, where there is no set format for apartment or studio numbers. Apartment numbers are sometimes stored with a “#”, sometimes as “Apt”, sometimes as “Apartment”, meaning that the same apartment number in the same block could be stored differently in the system, allowing voters to receive more than one voter number.

“Due to the shortcomings with regards to address format, it is difficult to provide a thorough analysis of voter clusters. An example of the problem can be seen, for example, in apartment blocks such as The Pavillion (1 Lafayette Plaisance St) where some residents did not even provide an apartment number,” she concluded.

Homeless Drop-in Centers

“The State’s drive to allow homeless people to vote seems to have been successful, and there were a number of votes received from homeless drop-in centers,” Eaglesfield reports.

Eaglesfield chalks up “raised awareness” as the reason why she saw a cluster of homeless votes. She has no way to verify if these homeless clusters were legitimate. This is just another very vulnerable avenue to commit voter fraud especially in a county where a few thousand votes can make all the difference in the overall state election.

The mail-in ballot rejection rate in Michigan in 2020 was 1.256%. This is lower than the statewide 2016 Michigan rejection rate of 2.02% stated by the Election Assistance Committee in their 2016 Election Administration and Voting Survey.

Michigan and most of those other states had a significantly lower rate of rejection compared to 2016, and 2018, which Eaglesdfield concluded: “if the rejection rate was significantly lower, it would point to potential legal ballots being disregarded.”

If you are flooding the system with mail-in ballots that you know are fraudulent, then you must throw away legal ballots to make sure the overall count of total votes does not go above 100 percent.

There are more than enough allegations to warrant full forensic audits in many of those states. The Democrats are playing the “nothing to see here” game. That’s why it is so important that Americans continue to question the results and become vocal with your state representatives.
