District senator Aric Nesbitt and 6 other Michigan senators along with one state representative called for a full audit of the Michigan vote, citing major irregularities and instances of voter fraud. These instances were based on nearly 200 signed witness affidavits provided by the Trump team over a week earlier.
Here is a summary of the document they filed, you can also review the entire document at your own discretion.
First, in Antrim County, an error caused thousands of Michigan ballots that were meant for some candidates to be wrongly counted for their opposing candidates. While this issue was identified and corrected after observers flagged the unlikeliness of the outcome, it is unclear whether this issue
replicated itself elsewhere.
Antrim is just one of 47 counties in Michigan that used the software system at issue, Dominion Voting Systems, to process their ballots. This is particularly concerning when at least one other secretary of state, specifically in Texas, refused to certify Dominion Voting Systems for use because the examiner could not verify that the system was “safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation.”
This raises questions over whether there are fundamental flaws in the software itself.
The dominion software has fallen under severe scrutiny after software “glitches” resulting in improper counts. The software itself was rejected 2 times in 2019 in the state of Texas over security concerns. The document continues:
Second, there are allegations that election officials critically mishandled numerous ballots, including:
– counted ineligible ballots;
– counted the same batches of ballots multiple times;
– instructed poll workers to backdate absentee ballots;
– counted late ballots after illicitly pre-dating them;
– used false information to process ballots, such as using incorrect or false birthdays and inserted new names into the QVF and recorded these new voters as having a birthdate of 1/1/1900;
– accepted ballots deposited in drop boxes after the deadline;
– duplicated ballots illegally;
– counted ballots even though the voter’s name did not appear in the official voter rolls;
– ordered election workers to not verify voters’ signatures on absentee ballots;
– barred poll challengers from observing the transposition and certification of absentee ballots that need to be transposed, including military ballots; and
– coached voters to vote for a particular candidate and party.
I’ve covered many of these affidavits myself connecting these claims to real witness statements. These claims line up with the witness testimonies. The document continues:
Finally, there are allegations of illegal and official intimidation and interference with lawful election challengers and poll watchers. Poll watchers are the cornerstone of our Election Day process to ensure accountability and oversight. Disrupting their access and preventing them from fulfilling their legal right and responsibilities is an infringement on the election process. The allegations include:
– harassment of challengers tolerated or perpetrated by election officials;
– denial of the opportunity to meaningfully observe the processing of ballots;
– arbitrary and unequal treatment of challengers;
– refusal to record challenges to their processes; and
– removal of challengers from the site if they voiced a challenge
These accusations also correspond to many of the witness affidavits. At the end of the claim, the senator explains why they are pursuing this action:
As a followup to this request, it appears the election will be certified only if allegations are properly investigated in Wayne County, take a look:
Aric Nesbitt is absolutely correct. If these accusations are not taken seriously then it seriously undermines the integrity of this election and potentially all future election. One thing is certain, more accountability and auditing can only benefit Americans in the long wrong, no matter the outcome.
