Maricopa County election officials say a bagful of shredded ballots that “stop the steal” activists claim to have found in a trash can at the elections department weren’t cast in the 2020 election.

Staci Burk, a Pinal County woman who filed a failed lawsuit challenging the general election results last year, alleges that she and others found a bag filled with shredded ballots from the November election in a Dumpster outside a loading dock at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center south of downtown Phoenix.
