Last Year Elizabeth Warren Filed Complaint That Dominion Voting Machines Switched Votes
Yesterday President Trump sent out an alarm that Dominion voting machines switched or deleted 2.7 million votes for him. The liberal media quickly dismissed this by asking the company if their software was terrible or corrupt and when they said “no” that was good enough. In related news, democrats Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar filed a complaint last year saying that Dominion voting machines were unreliable and switched votes.
Check out this 2019 complaint Senators Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Ron Wyden, and Rep. Mark Pocan, all democrats, filed with a private equity group in regards to Dominion voting machines.
We are particularly concerned that secretive and ”trouble-plagued companies,” owned by private equity firms and responsible for manufacturing and maintaining voting machines and other election administration equipment, “have long skimped on security in favor of convenience,” leaving voting systems across the country “prone to security problems.
Today, three large vendors-Election Systems & Software, Dominion Voting Systems, and Hart InterCivic- collectively provide voting machines and software that facilitate voting for over 90% of all eligible voters in the United States.
Election security experts have noted for years that our nation’s election systems and infrastructure are under serious threat. In January 2017, the U.S. Department ofHomeland Security designated the United States’ election infrastructure as “critical infrastructure” in order to prioritize the protection of our elections and to more effectively assist state and local election officials in addressing these risks.
Now here’s some problems that might sound familiar:
However, voting machines are reportedly falling apart across the country, as vendors neglect to innovate and improve important voting systems, putting our elections at avoidable and increased risk. In 2015, election officials in at least 31 states, representing approximately 40 million registered voters, reported that their voting machines needed to be updated, with almost every state “using some machines that are no longer manufactured.” Moreover, even when state and local officials work on replacing antiquated machines, many continue to “run on old software that will soon be outdated and more vulnerable to hackers.”
In 2018 alone “voters in South Carolina [were] reporting machines that switched their votes after they’d inputted them, scanners [were] rejecting paper ballots in Missouri, and busted machines [were] causing long lines in Indiana.” In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in “nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states.” And, just this year, after the Democratic candidate’s electronic tally showed he received an improbable 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in a Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county’s Republican Chairwoman said, ” [n]othing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong. That’s a problem.” These problems threaten the integrity of our elections and demonstrate the importance of election systems that are strong, durable, and not vulnerable to attack.
