Alleged “Software Glitches” And “Voter Irregularities” Raise Questions Regarding Election Results, GOP Chairwoman Says

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Over the last few days, we’ve seen some pretty interesting voter irregularities and even some significant “glitches.”

Interesting results of ballot tabulation have raised a few eyebrows, although some insist that there is an easy explanation for the statistically impossible results.

Out of thousands of ballots, there was apparently not one single person who voted 3rd party, write-in, or Trump. Despite the fact that mail-in ballots favor Democrats, 100% surpasses statistical possibility.

Of course, when the media realized that these 4 am data dumps were statistically impossible and looked bad, they came up with all kinds of excuses about how the data might have been input.

But what of all the supposed glitches?

In two heavily republican counties in Georgia, the polling machines unexpectedly “glitched” when the vendor uploaded something to the machines that morning, which delayed voting by several hours. Elections supervisor at Spalding County Board of Election, Marcia Ridley, said the polling machine company

“uploaded something last night, which is not normal, and it caused a glitch.”

“That is something that they don’t ever do. I’ve never seen them update anything the day before the election.”

An unusual and unexpected upload that shuts down the machines right as voting starts for predominantly Republican counties? Hmm.

And in Michigan, GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox discussed almost 6000 Trump votes in Antrim County that were somehow tabulated as Biden votes.

“The county clerk [Sheryl Guy] came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes. Since then, we have now discovered that 47 counties used this same software in the same capacity.”

The correction of the “glitch” flipped the entire county back to Trump. This kind of “glitch” is significant enough to decide races. We know this because it literally decided the race for Michigan county official Adam Kochenderfer, who was prepared to concede the race after it appeared he had lost by about 100 votes. But when the “glitch” was corrected, he ended up winning by more than 1,100 votes.

But it’s even bigger than that. Not only do 47 of Michigan’s 83 counties also use Dominion Voting System, the same software that is responsible for the significant “glitch,” but this system is also used in 28 other states. In fact, it’s the system responsible for the Georgia county glitches mentioned above.

Interestingly, some states have repeatedly refused to use this software, citing a list of issues that degraded confidence in the veracity of the software.

It wasn’t just certain states that had concerns about Dominion Voting System software, as well as other voting software systems.

In fact, NBC News wrote several articles specifically about the vulnerabilities of voting systems including Dominion. They found evidence of Chinese parts, foreign and biased investment in the companies, and connection to the internet. One article states,

“The three largest voting manufacturing companies — Election Systems &Software, Dominion Voting Systems and Hart InterCivic — have acknowledged they all put modems in some of their tabulators and scanners. The reason? So that unofficial election results can more quickly be relayed to the public. Those modems connect to cell phone networks, which, in turn, are connected to the internet.

When asked how many of their vote tabulator machines with internet-connected modems were in use,

“Dominion did not respond to numerous requests from NBC News for their sales numbers.”

All of this begs a couple of questions:

  • If it happened in two counties in Georgia and one county in Michigan, could it have happened elsewhere?
  • If it happened elsewhere, will they investigate and correct any glitches?
  • Even if they correct the glitches, how does this affect the public confidence in our election?
