Dominion Voting Systems has taken a huge hit.
Thanks to the questions and concerns over the 2020 election and Dominion’s role in casting ballots, many states, and counties are now saying “no thanks” to using the machines for a number of different reasons.
One Northern Michigan county that was at the hub of the 2020 election voting fiasco has said that they will forgo using Dominion for their upcoming May primary, and will instead count ballots by hand.
A northern Michigan county that encountered controversy regarding the 2020 general election has decided to hand-count every ballot in an upcoming primary instead of using machines from Dominion Voting Systems.
Antrim County commissioners voted unanimously to hand-count the votes of the upcoming May 4 primary. The commissioners rejected a proposal from county clerk Sheryl Guy to apportion $5,080 to hire consultants to prepare Dominion voting machines for the upcoming primary.
Commissioners are concerned that reprogramming the machines and then using them in the primary would violate a judge’s order. The machines could be evidence in an ongoing lawsuit; reprogramming them could delete data relevant to the case.
“If we use them, we have to delete them, which is contradictory to a court order,” commissioner Terry VanAlstine said before the vote, according to the Epoch Times. “We can’t delete the data that’s on the machines. If you use the current machines, they need to be swiped, they need to be cleared. And we can’t do that.”
The piece goes on to say that back in November, human error, not Dominion Voting Systems was responsible for an “incomplete software update that mistakenly assigned about 2,000 votes cast for then-President Donald Trump, to then-Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden.”
“Initial results in the Republican county showed a local victory for Joe Biden over Donald Trump. But it was attributed to human error, not any problems with voting machines, and corrected.
However, a judge still allowed forensic images of Dominion election equipment according to U.S. News & World Report.
