A judge has allowed the release of the results of a forensic audit conducted in Antrim County, Michigan which could effect vote counts in every area that used Dominion Voting Systems software.
Conservatives may remember Antrim County from a news story that broke soon after the election, in which 6,000 votes were switched from President Trump to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, and from Republican Senate candidate John James to Democrat Senator Gary Peters. It was originally reported that the switch happened because of a “software glitch,” but Democrats have claimed that the real problem was human error. This new revelation may prove that the Democrats were wrong.
The forensic audit, which found several serious anomalies, was conducted by Allied Security Operations Group, a company whose employees include former Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and Central Intelligence Agency officials. When they evaluated a Dominion ImageCast Precinct machine for possible hardware problems, they found that more than 1,400 votes were changed.
“This is the most preliminary report of serious election fraud indicators. In comparing the numbers on both rolls, we estimate 1,474 votes changed across the two rolls, between the first and the second time the exact same ballots were run through the County Clerk’s vote counting machine—which is almost the same number of voters that voted in total,” the group said after evaluating two tape rolls in Central Lake Township.
According to the audit, “742 votes were added to School Board Member for Central Lake Schools,” and “657 votes were removed from School Board Member for Ellsworth Schools.”
“There were incremental changes throughout the rolls with some significant adjustments between the 2 rolls that were reviewed. This demonstrates conclusively that votes can be and were changed during the second machine count after the software update. That should be impossible especially at such a high percentage to total votes cast,” Allied Security Operations Group wrote.
“For the School Board Member for Central Lake Schools, there were 742 votes added to this vote total. Since multiple people were elected, this did not change the result of both candidates being elected, but one does see a change in who had most votes. If it were a single-person election this would have changed the outcome and demonstrates conclusively that votes can be and were changed during the second machine counting. That should be impossible,” Allied said.
In the analysis of the election for School Board Member for Ellsworth Schools, the company said that 657 votes were “removed from this election,” adding, “In this case, only 3 people who were eligible to vote actually voted. Since there were 2 votes allowed for each voter to cast,” while the recount “correctly shows 6 votes.”
The report included two images from the “School Board Member for Ellsworth Schools” vote totals from Election Day, and the Michigan recount which began on November 6. On Election Night, 663 total votes were recorded, while the recount showed only six total votes.
The audit was conducted on behalf of plaintiff William Bailey, who requested it in a lawsuit. On Monday, Judge Kevin Elsenheimer allowed Allied Security Operations Group’s report to be released to the public.
The report also alleges that crucial logs from the 2020 election are missing.
“Significantly, the computer system shows vote adjudication logs for prior years; but all adjudication log entries for the 2020 election cycle are missing. The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes. The lack of records prevents any form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using the same software,” the report states.
“We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed,” the report continues.
It is extremely concerning that these logs are “missing” because the audit also found that the voting machines rejected a significant number of ballots for adjudication, which is a manual process where election workers examine and determine the outcome for each ballot.
“The allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots. We observed an error rate of 68.05 percent. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity,” the report reads.
“These errors resulted in overall tabulation errors or ballots being sent to adjudication. This high error rates proves the Dominion Voting System is flawed and does not meet state or federal election laws. Because the intentional high error rate generates large numbers of ballots to be adjudicated by election personnel, we must deduce that bulk adjudication occurred. However, because files and adjudication logs are missing, we have not yet determined where the bulk adjudication occurred or who was responsible for it. Our research continues,” the report continues.
