The Electoral College may have already voted President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election, but serious questions about the validity of those results continue to linger.
The Allied Security Operations Group issued a report stating Dominion Voting Systems in one Michigan county had a 68.05% error rate, the National Pulse reported. “We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” the report released Sunday said.
“The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors,” the report alleged. “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.”
The report acknowledged that “the allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%)” meaning their findings are exponentially higher than the infinitesimal rate normally tolerated. The discrepancies emerged from Antrim County, Michigan where a “glitch” switched thousands of votes for President Donald Trump to his Democratic opponent and now President-elect Joe Biden.
The report also said that these errors were attributed to “machine and/or software error, not human error.” However, state officials have insisted it was human error. “The erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim county was a result of accidental error on the part of the Antrim County clerk,” a news release from the Michigan’s elections oversight agency said, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The agency claimed that all ballots were counted properly, but that the “clerk accidentally did not update the software used to collect voting machine data and report unofficial results.” Even if the agency’s theory is true, it does expose the pitfalls of so much machinery and software involved in a process that could be as simple as checking a box on a slip of paper to be tabulated by hand. The problem with the results was only obvious because the county that normally voted heavily for Republicans suddenly turned blue.
Voters are skeptical of the whole election, especially the president who tweeted Tuesday, “68% error rate in Michigan Voting Machines. Should be, by law, a tiny percentage of one percent. Did Michigan Secretary of State break the law? Stay tuned!”

This year’s election was decided by an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots. Biden campaigned from his basement when not “calling a lid” for days at a time, refusing to come out of his hidey hole. President Donald Trump earned 10 million more votes than during the 2016 election and flipped several House of Representative seats down-ballot. However, Biden still won with 80 million votes — more than any other president in history.
Biden possibly won fair and square, but the added problem with voting machines combined with other anomalies will make it difficult for many to overcome those glaring doubts.
