Expert witness, Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, gave a presentation to the Georgia State Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Dec. 30 detailing how he can perform a forensic examination of paper ballots to detect kinematic artifacts. Pulitzer is a pattern recognition expert holding over 200 patents. His patents are used on 12 billion handheld devices around the world. The subcommittee met to hear evidence of alleged fraud from multiple witnesses assembled by Trump election campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani pertaining to the 2020 Georgia state Presidential election.
Kinematic artifacts are “evidence on paper” of folding, printing, and markings on the physical ballots. Every physical process applied to a ballot leaves marks, many of which are invisible to the naked eye. Pulitzer said he could quickly detect many kinds of election fraud by running the ballots through forensic scanners designed to detect these kinematic artifacts.
With 100 percent accuracy, Pulitzer said that his process could detect the following types of fraud or irregularities:
- How many ballots were printed by a specific machine.
- Counterfeit ballots.
- Ballots from China.
- The type of ink used.
- How many ballots were mailed.
- How many ballots were filled out by machine.
- How many ballots were counted more than once.
- Which ballots went through adjudication.
- How many ballots were scanned more than once.
- What candidates were marked on all the ballots in the categories above.

Pulitzer showed a slide during his presentation quoting a Fulton County Election official stating that 106,000 of 113,130 votes were adjudicated, an astounding 93.67% adjudication rate. Pulitzer said that the high adjudication rates indicate that the machines are not working properly.
