Voting Machine Concerns May Impact Integrity of Election

Voting Machine Concerns May Impact Integrity of Election

( – Leading up to the 2020 election, concerns were mounting about voting machines, ballot irregularities, and votes being switched randomly from one candidate to another. Yet, the concerns were not widely known until recently. A former federal prosecutor and now Trump election legal team attorney, Sidney Powell, is exposing that the presidential election may have been compromised, hurting Donald Trump’s re-election bid.

At a press conference on Thursday, November 19, Powell went into great detail about how the integrity of the election is in question. She specifically targeted two voting machine companies, Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic. Dominion voting systems were used in 2,000 jurisdictions across 30 states in this election, including the hotly contested battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Past Concerns Brought to Members of Congress

Dominion has had its fair share of criticism from both parties. In December 2019, a letter written by Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) expressed deep concerns about the software that Dominion uses. In part, one of the biggest concerns was the lack of public information on how the company researched and developed their systems to ensure voter integrity.

The senators noted that evidence in the 2018 South Carolina and Pennsylvania elections proved that votes were being switched in real-time. That called into question the integrity of the midterm elections in 2018.

So, Democrats knew that there were serious flaws and problems in 2018, but never demanded hearings and laws to prevent voter switching from happening again. Now, serious questions are being raised about the voting machines and vote switching once again.

Powell Identifies Affidavit Suggesting Intentional Malfeasance

In the news conference and in other recent media appearances, Powell shared that a Venezuelan “whistleblower” signed an affidavit saying the system was designed to change votes without the switch in votes ever detected. She claims the whistleblower is a former high-ranking military official who worked with Hugo Chavez to rig elections. In the video below, Powell shares in detail the allegations with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs.

On Tuesday, Powell claimed that the founder of Dominion Voting Systems admitted millions of votes could be changed with “no problem at all.”

Dominion Suddenly Backs Out of Pennsylvania Hearing

On Friday morning at 10 a.m. the Pennsylvania State Government Committee was supposed to hold a hearing with Dominion to identify and correct irregularities in Pennsylvania’s voting process. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf decertified every voting machine over security concerns.

Hours before the hearing, Dominion lawyered up and company representatives backed out of testifying before the committee. They refused to say their machines worked as promised, and added credibility to Powell’s allegations.

Stay tuned. This is a developing story.
