It began with a sharp-eyed Republican asking questions about why the results weren’t lining up with what they know about a strongly red county.
It ended with an audit of the vote, the discovery of a voting machine putting Trump votes in the Biden column, 3000 votes being reassigned to the Trump column and the county flipping red.
Then, people started asking questions…
In 2016, President Donald Trump received 64% of the vote there to Hillary Clinton’s 32%.
However, on Wednesday morning Antrim polls showed Joe Biden with a 3,000 vote lead.
“There is no way that we flipped from 62 percent Trump in 2016 to upside down this time around,” Michigan State House Representative Tristan Cole said on Interlochen Public Radio.
Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Gray investigated the matter.
Gray told The Detroit Free Press the “results on electronic tapes and a computer card were accurate but it appeared that some of the results were somehow scrambled after the cards were transported in sealed bags from township precincts to county offices and downloaded onto a computer.”
Whatever the cause, the issue was caught, addressed and fixed by an astute county clerk.
But according to Michigan GOP Chairman Laura Cox, “47 counties use this same software in the same capacity,” including Wayne County (Detroit). —MichiganStar
The question remains to be resolved whether this flip was due to the software, or what is being described as user error. The piece cited in Michigan Star puts blame on ‘user error’, while others have concerns about the machines themselves.
ElectionSource, the company responsible for the software claims it was due to a minor correction made by election officials in the ballots just before the election that caused an error that produced incorrect unofficial numbers but had no bearing on the official ones.
It would be wise to have a third party investigate and either confirm or disprove the claim being made so that we can have some transparency in the process. Especially since we have seen that ‘errors’ like these invariably favor the same party.
This is a question that is worth answering, considering there are other races counted by machines using the same software… and not just in Michigan. Other battleground states are said to have relied on the same software.
In the interest of transparency, since we have seen some of the bare-knuckle tactics the left has been known to play, how motivated they were with the ‘resist’ strategy, and how improbably high the vote count has been for a candidate who could barely draw flies, it would be good to know what connections, if any, this and other election companies have to political persons or entities.
