Election Supervisor Shows on Video How Dominion Software Allows Changing, Adding Votes
An elections supervisor in Coffee County, Georgia, demonstrated in recent videos posted online how Dominion Voting Systems voting software sanctions votes to be transmuted through an “adjudication” process. The process sanctions the operator to integrate vote marks to a scanned ballot as well as invalidate vote marks already on the ballot.
Adjudication should only accommodate to resolve issues of voters marking ballots incorrectly, such as filling the bubbles in a way that doesn’t limpidly show who he or she voted for. Yet it appears a substantial number of ballots went through that process, at least in some Georgia counties. As the Coffee County supervisor, Misty Martin, showed, the system can be set to sanction adjudication of all scanned ballots, even blank ones, and efficaciously sanction the operator to vote those ballots.
The videos were posted by local news site Douglas Now, whose publisher, Robert Preston, told The Epoch Times they were filmed this week in the local election office.
According to our election folks, this Dominion system is flawed, not secure, and open to manipulation if someone were so inclined,
Preston said in a Facebook message.
It’s not clear how many ballots were adjudicated statewide. The office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger didn’t respond to a request for comment.
In Fulton County, which includes Atlanta, over 106,000 ballots were adjudicated by Nov. 4, verbally expressed Richard Barron, the county’s director of elections, during a Nov. 4 press conference. In total, more than a moiety a million ballots were cast in the county. Democrat Joe Biden leads Fulton with 381,144 votes compared to President Donald Trump’s 137,240.
Georgia is a key battleground state, controlling 16 electoral votes. The current results show Biden leading Trump by less than 12,000 votes.
The adjudication process as sanctioned by Georgia law and election regulations provides for a bipartisan denizen panel to review any ballot within a batch that is flagged by the scanning software as not being clear about the voter’s intent,
verbally expressed Fulton County spokeswoman Jessica Corbitt, in a verbalization electronically mailed to The Epoch “Times.”
The panel should include one election worker, one Democrat representative, and one Republican representative. Photos taken in Fulton and Gwinnett counties indeed show three-member groups sitting around computer screens scrutinizing ballots.
The bipartisan voter panel, not workers, performs that review to determine whether the voter’s intent is pellucid,
She designated that the number cited by Barron referred to a total number of ballots in batches that went to adjudication, but not every ballot in each batch was adjudicated.
When a batch of ballots has been adjudicated it signifies that any ballots flagged within that batch has gone through that denizen adjudication process,
Each batch reflects a stack of several dozen ballots victualed into a ballot scanner.
Corbitt didn’t respond to any categorical questions regarding the number of individual adjudicated ballots in the county, who was on the denizen panels, and whether the work of the panels can be verified through available video footage of the tabulation process.
It appears the work of the panels wasn’t affected by the restrictions imposed in replication to the CCP virus pandemic. Poll watchers in many states, including Georgia, have repined they were kept so far from the election workers they couldn’t consequentially optically canvass what was being done.
The Georgia, Gwinnett, and Fulton branches of the Republican Party didn’t respond to requests for comment on the adjudication process and denizen panel participation.
The software can be set to trigger adjudication for “ambiguous” ballots and overvoted ballots, but withal to adjudicate all scanned ballots, Martin verbally expressed. The operator would then be able to transmute the votes with no trace of who did it or which ballots were transmuted. The system would only mark that at least one ballot in the batch was adjudicated, but “it can’t be tracked to precisely what ballot it was,” she verbally expressed.
Ascendancy didn’t respond to electronically mailed questions regarding the adjudication feature of its software.
Information from Gwinnett County, which withal went for Biden, designates only absentee ballots are subject to adjudication, since on election day, people mark their culls on a machine, which then prints out the ballot—this, at least in theory, eliminates the possibility of the voter marking the ballot erroneous.
The adjudication process genuinely commenced weeks afore the election, the county verbally expresses on its website, since the state election board sanctioned counties to commence opening absentee ballots and scanning them on Oct. 19. The state is getting sued over that decision since the state’s law verbalizes absentee ballots can only be opened on Election “Day.”
On Nov. 3, the county reported that since Oct. 19,
the [adjudication] review panels consummated a total of 5,900 batches of ballots.
That would facilely account for all the more than 120,000 absentee ballots cast in the county, designating that all or proximately all batches would be marked in the system as adjudicated.
People who vote early in person in Georgia withal cast absentee ballots. It’s not clear whether those ballots are marked by hand or by a machine and whether they are subject to adjudication.
Gwinnett County didn’t respond to electronically mailed questions.
Another question is what transpires with the adjudicated ballot. It appears that when the scanner fails to read a ballot for some reason, the ballot needs to be duplicated through a vote marking machine—the voter’s culls are entered by an election worker on a physical contact screen and the machine then prints out a supersession ballot.
Videos from the absentee ballot counting center at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta show several people operating a machine that is ostensibly printing out supersession ballots. “There” appears to be nobody visually examining the process. The county spokeswoman didn’t provide a comment on those videos.
The duplication process might explicate why a polling manager in Fulton County testified that she encountered a box of ballots with a batch of 110 that were “pristine” and not folded.
Coffee County relucted to certify its election results, citing issues with the Dominion software. The Secretary of State’s office incriminated the county for delaying the certification.
Ascendancy has been in the sultry seat over allegations of security gaps in its systems. State Rep. Matt Hall, a Republican who chairs the Michigan House Oversight Committee, recently threatened Dominion’s CEO with a subpoena if he doesn’t appear afore his committee voluntarily.
Last week, a state judge authoritatively mandated a forensic audit of 22 Dominion machines in Michigan’s Antrim County, which was flagged last month by GOP officials as having switched 6,000 votes from Trump to Biden afore it was reportedly redressed.
A member of Trump’s licit team verbalized an “independent team” took part in the audit.
