Michigan’s Antrim County Audit of Dominion Voting Systems Audit Reveals Staggaring Irregularities

After a judge’s decision Monday morning, the results of an audit of ballot counting machines in Antrim County are now being made available to the public.

A lawsuit filed last month by Bill Bailey led to the forensic examination. The audit was done by the Allied Security Operations Group – a cybersecurity firm in Texas.

Michigan’s Antrim County Audit of Dominion Voting Systems Audit Reveals Staggaring Irregularities

The United States uses electronic voting machines supplied by Dominion Voting Systems Corporation were tainted and the audit trail required to prove the integrity of those machines has been erased. Other jurisdictions across the United States have used the company’s products, some for years. Dominion says it serves more than 40 percent of American voters and that its products are used in 28 states.

You can (and you should) read the damning results of the forensic investigation of the Dominion Voting System machines used in Antrim County, Michigan. The public release of the audit was authorized by Judge Kevin Elsenheimer despite opposition. It takes a closer look at the voting operation system used to count the ballots in Antrim County. Here are the key facts from this investigation:

  • The audit states that computer analysis shows that “On November 21, 2020, an unauthorized user unsuccessfully attempted to zero out election results. This demonstrates … direct proof of an attempt to tamper with evidence.”
  • The machine tabulated results reported on November 3, 2020 show there were 12,423 votes for President–with Joe Biden receiving 7,769 and Donald Trump garnering 4,509. The machine count for 3 November shows that only 56% of the registered voters cast a ballot for President. But a subsequent tabulation three weeks later (21 November) put Trump on top with 9,748 votes to Biden’s 5,960. The total votes for President increased by 3,526 and the turnout approached 73%.
  • A staggering number of the ballots cast in Antrim required ADJUDICATION. The Dominion system classifies ballots into two categories, 1) normal ballots and 2) adjudicated ballots. Ballots sent to adjudication can be altered by administrators, and adjudication files can be moved between different Results Tally and Reporting (RTR) terminals with no audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicates (i.e. votes) the ballot batch.
  • In Central Lake Township, for example, 81.96% of the 1,491 total ballots cast were adjudicated, which means that the decision about who received the vote was made by election personnel.
  • All the ADJUDICATION logs for the November 2020 election cycle are missing while the files for previous years still exist. The lack of current records prevents any form of audit accountability.
  • All server security logs prior to 11:03 pm on November 4, 2020 are missing. This means that all security logs for the day after the election, on election day, and prior to election day are gone. These logs contain domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections to file servers between file accesses, internet connections, times, and data transfers.
  • An unauthorized user unsuccessfully attempted to zero out election results on November 21, 2020.
  • The Election Event Designer Log shows that Dominion Image Cast Precinct Cards were programmed with new ballot programming on 10/23/2020 and then again after the election on 11/05/2020. Specifically, the Central Lake Township tabulator tape totals were significantly altered by utilizing two different program versions (10/23/2020 and 11/05/2020), both of which were software changes during an election–a clear violation of election law.
  • Antrim County used two software packages with the Dominion machines–one counted actual votes (i.e. tabulated) and the other CALCULATED ballot totals.
  • The tabulator tape totals prove there were large numbers of votes switched from the November 3, 2020 tape to the November 6, 2020 tape. This was solely based on using different software versions of the operating program to calculate votes.
  • A high “error rate” in the election software (in this case 68.05%) means an algorithm was used that weighted one candidate greater than another (for instance, weight a specific candidate at a 2/3 to approximately 1/3 ratio). The Antrim logs show that the RCV or Ranked Choice Voting Algorithm was enabled (see image below from the Dominion manual), which allows the user to apply a weighted numerical value to candidates and change the overall result.
  • The Dominion voting machines used in Antrim County are used in 48 other Michigan counties, which calls into question the entire results of the Presidential election.

Also according to ASOG, “The Election Event Designer Log shows that Dominion ImageCast Precinct Cards were programmed with new ballot programming on 10/23/2020 and then again after the election on 11/05/2020…. In accordance with the Help America Vote Act, this violates the 90-day Safe Harbor Period which prohibits changes to election systems, registries, hardware/software updates without undergoing re-certification. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures – Michigan requires full compliance with federal standards.”

“Let’s be clear: Michigan’s Nov. 3 general election in Michigan and across the country was the most secure in the nation’s history,” said Secretary Benson upon the release of the report. “There continues to be no evidence of widespread fraud…”

In response to this major development, former New York City Mayor and attorney to President Trump, Rudolph Giuliani, said:

“The findings in Antrim County, where the error rate was a mind-blowing 68%, the ballot rejection rate was 82%, and software security records and adjudication files were missing, in violation of state and federal laws, are nothing short of mind-blowing. The evidence of fraud is undisputable.

“The records for security changes, adjudication processes, and systems files that would show remote internet access to the voting systems, were found to be missing from the Antrim County systems. Such information is in place for previous election years, but not for 2020, violation of Michigan state law MCL 168.811 requiring retention of voting records for 22 months. Election software is certified for the entire state, and thus, the error rates and rejection rates of Antrim County’s software, can be expected to be replicated across all Dominion machines throughout Michigan as they should be running the exact same software systems.

“Further to hiding the true vote count from the Michigan votes, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson issued a directive on December 1, 2020, for all County Clerks in Michigan to destroy the evidence of voting processes by deleting electronic voting data and records by December 8, 2020. We now know what evidence they are seeking to destroy – massive movement and miscounting of Michigan citizens’ votes – and that they are doing so in violation of state law.

“These results prove what we have said all along about the management of the ballot fraud perpetrated through these Dominion voting machines: that these machines were intentionally manipulated to move votes, deny voters their desired election choices, and, ultimately, though national use of these corrupted systems, achieve a victory for Joe Biden.

“This certainly requires state leaders to halt any further approval of presidential electors until all of these machines have been seized for auditing and analysis. This new revelation makes it clear that the vote count being presented now by the democrats in Michigan constitutes an intentionally false and misleading representation of the final vote tally. The Electors simply cannot be certified based on these demonstrably false vote counts.

“The results are expected to be the same in major cities across the swing states, as we have now proven in Antrim County, MI, thanks to the prudent decision by Judge Elsenheimer to allow the release of the audit today.”
