Votes that were meant to be awarded to President Trump were instead given to Joe Biden through a computer “glitch” according to the GOP.
During a press conference, Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said, “In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000 vote swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said a tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the vote.”
This same software is used in 47 other counties across the state of Michigan, a state where Joe Biden made a comeback reliant upon mail-in ballots.
“Since then we have discovered that 47 counties use this same software in the same capacity. Antrim County had to hand count all of the ballots, and these counties that used this software need to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies. The people of Michigan deserve a transparent and open process. ”
Antrim county is home to 18,000 residents. This means that a third of votes cast in the county were mistakenly counted as Biden votes. If this is the case, it is wise for the GOP and the Trump Campaign to ask for a full hand recount on all ballots in Michigan.
UPDATED CORRECTION: The issue was caused by a user error, and not an internal systems glitch as previously reported.
