A hand recount confirmed that a Michigan county falsely reported a win for Democrat candidate Joe Biden on election night.
The recount showed that President Donald Trump actually won Antrim County with 9,759 votes compared to Biden’s 5,959.
On election night, county officials claimed that Biden carried the county by over 3,000 votes. However, there were multiple alterations to the vote count after that. Two days later, those same officials said that Trump had actually won by approximately 2,500 votes. And they changed the vote count on Nov. 21, saying Trump was being certified the winner by more than 4,000 votes.
Antrim County uses Dominion Voting Systems.
Antrim County has gained the national spotlight thanks to an independent forensic audit which showed Dominion software was “intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.”
The audit found that Dominion “intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors” in order to transfer them to adjudication. The audit report asserts that sending these ballots to adjudication will result in “no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail.”
“A staggering number of votes required adjudication,” Russell James Ramsland Jr., co-founder of the Allied Security Operations Group, said. “This was a 2020 issue not seen in previous election cycles still stored on the server. This is caused by intentional errors in the system. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency or audit trail.”
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson attributed the mistake in tabulating the vote to human error.
Dominion’s CEO, John Poulos, answered questions from legislators in Michigan earlier this week. Poulos asserted that Dominion machines had to be updated in October due to a new rule change. But Antrim County officials did not update all 18 tabulators. As a result, some of the machines were using new programming while others were not.
“If all of the tabulators had been updated as per procedure, there wouldn’t have been any error in the unofficial reporting,” Poulos said.
