Dominion will be a name that goes down in infamy once the 2020 elections have finally concluded.
Dominion refers to the voting machine system being used across the nation. It was heavily used throughout the 2020 elections and has likely facilitated one of the largest cases of voter fraud in American history.
The World Tribune reported that a software glitch in the Dominion witnessed 6,000 votes go from Republican to Democrat in Antrim County, Michigan on November 3, 2020. The county clerk was able to nip this issue in the bud and it has apparently been fixed. Similar reports of software glitches were apparently present in Georgia.
“The county clerk [Sheryl Guy] came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes,” Michigan GOP chair Laura Cox commented. “Antrim County had to hand-count all of the ballots. And all these counties that use this software need to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies.”
On November 3, 69 counties used Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5 software.
Dominion Voting Systems Inc. is in the top three voting equipment vendors that make up a whopping 88 percent of the American market.
Back in January during a testimony before Congress, John Poulos, CEO of Dominion Voting Systems revealed that the machines Dominion produces features parts made in China. In addition, he highlighted that having foreign suppliers isn’t a unique feature of the voting equipment sector.
“Several of those components, to our knowledge, there is no option for manufacturing those in the United States,” Poulos stated.
However, election integrity specialists have expressed misgivings about supply-chain security, where election equipment could be sabotaged during the manufacturing process.
The controversial voting system software was also used in key battleground states such as Arizona, Georgia, Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. In the case of Arizona, Maricopa County — a crucial county in Arizona — used this system for casting ballots.
Dominion Voting Systems has close ties to high-profile Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Back in April, Bloomberg reported that in 2019 Dominion Voting Systems hired a prominent lobbying firm that has a staff member who previously worked as Pelosi’s aide. They ended up turning to the services of Brownstein Farber Hyatt & Schreck. Nadeam Elshami was Pelosi’s former chief of staff and is one of the lobbyists working with Dominion.
According to a Washington Post report published in 2014, the Clinton Foundation donated around $25,001-$50,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
Oakland County, Michigan was the site of one glitch which caused 1,200 Republican votes to go over to the Democrat side. Due to this switch, it appeared that County Commissioner Adam Kochenderfer was on the verge of losing. Upon fixing the glitch, Kochenderfer went from losing his race by 100 votes to winning it by a margin of over 1,100. According to the Royal Oak Tribune, Oakland County uses separate election software from Hart Intercivic. Verity is the proprietary system that Hart uses. Eleven counties in Michigan use Hart’s systems.
Although separate systems were used, Republican lawmakers in Michigan wanted to know why glitches in Michigan caused Republican votes to switch to the Democrat side for the different kinds of voting machines being used.
Michigan State Senator Ed McBroom announced on November 6th that a joint hearing of the state’s Senate and House of Representatives Oversight committees would take place on November 7th “as part of a legislative effort to ensure the integrity of our state elections.”
Voting machine manufacturers have admitted that some pieces of their equipment enables vote counts to be transmitted on election night via modem. Security experts contend that this is a flaw hackers can easily exploit.
Several glitches with software updates on Dominion Voting Systems equipment were reported in Morgan and Stanley counties in Georgia as well.
With the election still being contested, one can only guess what will happen next. Given the scope of irregularities and accusations of voter fraud taking place nationwide, it only makes sense for conservatives to push for proper audits and recounts. The stakes are just too high for conservatives to concede. Not standing up to what looks like the most widespread cases of electoral fraud in recent American history could mark the beginning of the end of America’s republican experiment.
