Four congressional Democrats warned last year that Dominion Voting Systems, a voting machine company whose equipment and software are used by dozens of states, was plagued by several problems that “threaten the integrity of our elections,” including “vote switching.”
Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Ron Wyden, Amy Klobuchar, and Rep. Mark Pocan wrote in a letter to the owner of Dominion in December 2019 that reports of machines “switching votes,” containing “undisclosed vulnerabilities,” and reporting “improbable” results were serious problems that needed to be addressed.
“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,’” the letter read.
“These problems threaten the integrity of our elections.”

“In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in ‘nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states.’
And this year, after the Democratic candidate’s electronic tally showed he received 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in a Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county’s Republican chairwoman said, ‘nothing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong.’ That’s a problem,” the Democrats continued.
One Michigan county experienced a serious tabulating error on Nov. 3rd, due to Dominion’s system.
The machines registered votes for President Trump as votes for Democratic candidate Joe Biden, which resulted in election officials calling the county for Biden, when it had actually voted for Trump.
Republican officials are probing other counties in the state to see how widespread this error was.
Elsewhere in Texas, Dominion Voting System’s machines were rejected three times by experts from the Texas secretary of state and attorney general’s office.
Trump has pointed to Dominion’s reported errors as proof that foul play was at work in this year’s election.
Now it is learned that the horrendous Dominion Voting System was used in Arizona (and big in Nevada). No wonder the result was a very close loss!
