A glitch-prone voting software called Dominion Voting Systems (Dominion) was used in all 159 of Georgia counties. Dominion classified their presence in Georgia as a “statewide voting system rollout.”
This past week, Dominion has caused delayed voting and reporting results in Gwinnett County, Morgan County, and Spalding County. Gwinnett County is the same location a whistleblower claimed had ballot machines used that were missing security seals.
Spalding County Elections Supervisor Marcia Ridley shared that the glitches were abnormal.
“[They] uploaded something [on Election Night], which is not normal, and it caused a glitch.”
This past weekend, Fulton County had to re-scan ballots after discovering that the number of votes received and the number of scanned ballots didn’t align. Fulton County officials didn’t know why the numbers didn’t transfer properly in the system.
One county in Michigan that used Dominion mistakenly awarded a majority of votes to Democratic candidate Joe Biden that were intended for President Donald Trump. 47 other counties in Michigan use the software.
Michigan officials asserted that the error was attributable to human mistakes, not Dominion.
Texas rejected the use of Dominion in their voting systems on three past occasions – including this year – citing security concerns. The state’s investigators found that the model – Democracy 5.5A – could be connected to the Internet through Ethernet ports.
In the fallout after Election Day, it appears that Texas hasn’t experienced technical errors in their ballot systems. One individual was charged with 134 counts of voter fraud this past weekend after submitting faulty voter registration applications.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger issued lengthy a statement after Senators Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) called for his resignation. Raffensperger stated that his administration is investigating all known allegations of voter fraud. He also asserted that there was unlikely a significant amount of illegal voting that would alter the election outcomes.
