Lansing — A Michigan judge decided Monday that supporters of President Donald Trump may publicly release and discuss information they’ve collected from an analysis of voting machines and data in Antrim County.
Antrim County with about 23,000 residents has gained the spotlight in the push from Trump’s supporters to try to discredit the results of the Nov. 3 election. Because of a failure to update voting software, President-elect Joe Biden was initially thousands of votes ahead of Trump in the Republican-leaning county’s unofficial results.
Trump later was shown to have a more than 5,000-vote lead in the county where about 16,000 votes were cast. The problem amid changing unofficial results led supporters of the president to question what had occurred in Antrim County and the integrity of Dominion Voting Systems, whose equipment the county used.
After a lawsuit brought by Antrim County resident William Bailey, Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer, a former Republican lawmaker, allowed Allied Securities Operation Group and Bailey to take forensic images of the county’s 22 tabulators and review other election-related material.
On Sunday, attorneys representing six Michigan Republicans who are challenging the state’s election results asked the U.S. Supreme Court to allow them to file new evidence under seal — meaning it’s not released to the public — including a “forensic examination” of voting machines in Antrim County, according to a letter obtained by The Detroit News.
“This evidence is crucial to a just resolution of the cases pending before this court,” the Michigan Republicans’ attorneys wrote to the U.S. Supreme Court. “The petitioners stand ready to provide the evidence to the court under the procedures it deems appropriate.”
Here is the complete forensics report:
According to the audit; preliminary conclusion:
We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.
