(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) The New Mexico Audit Force found a 25% difference between the votes tabulated by Dominion Voting Systems machines and those counted by hand in a New Mexico County, Creative Destruction Media reported.
Torrance County officials audited the 2022 primary election results and presented the findings on Oct. 20. The Torrance County Sheriff’s Office has taken 24 Dominion SD cards and filed them as evidence, according to The Professor’s Record, a Telegram account.
In addition to the discrepancy between automated and hand-counted results, the audit also found that 83 people who voted in the 2022 primary election no longer appeared on the registered voter roll a few months later.
In a county where about 1,600 people voted, that means more than 5% of the county’s voters already left the area or never existed in the first place.
Of the 1,600 voters, the county’s assessors office could not locate 44 addresses that the registered voters provided—an almost 3% error rate. The hand-count audit revealed a partisan lean in the errors.
“Democrat votes were pretty close,” The Professor’s Record reported. “Republican votes were way off. All of the ballots were processed on the same tabulators. These party-specific errors happened on all the tabulators across the county regardless of whether the voter voted absentee, early, or on election day.”
The Telegram channel attributed the errors to “machine manipulation” that purposefully undercounted Republican votes.
Larry Marker, a write-in candidate for New Mexico Public Lands Commissioner, filed an emergency injunction request in federal court. He asked the court to prevent New Mexico from using its “uncertified and inequitable voting system.”
In Williamson County, Tennessee, an election audit found that six tabulators “seriously undercounted the number of ballots actually cast,” UncoverDC reported.
“One tabulator had 163 paper ballots, but the poll closing tape only showed 79 ballots counted,” an election inspector stated. “The second tabulator contained 167 paper ballots, and the corresponding poll closing tape showed only 19 ballots had been counted.”
