This week auditors in New Mexico uncovered a number of material issues in their work to date. One item that we learned is that the voting system is able to fill out ballots. Combined with what we knew some time ago, this is devastating.
This past week auditors in New Mexico identified that the voting systems used in the counties under review have the ability to fill in ballots. This was noted in the presentation before officials in Otero County, New Mexico. We then learned earlier today that a prior New York state investigation identified malicious code that could do this.
In addition to this breaking news, TGP identified other system issues within the voting systems. According to the Dominion website, its election system has the ability to print ballots.
The feature is explained in the Dominion Voting Systems manual on page 30:
4. Alternatively, if allowed by your jurisdiction, use the Automated Test Deck application. This application, available from Dominion Voting, can automatically generate the appropriate test decks and expected results totals.
Georgia purchased the “Automated Test Desk” option according to its procurement document reported at its website. See the following procurement document – see page 59:
Automated Test Deck Creation – The creation of automated, comprehensive test decks is an optional service provided by Dominion to assist customers in conducting Logic & Accuracy testing. Using the Election Day database, a series of pre-marked ballots are generated based on a computer algorithm designed to provide the highest assurance of system accuracy. When scanned these decks create known outcomes that can be compared with tabulated results. The elimination of error due to mistakes in hand-marking provides a higher degree of
confidence in test results.”
The more we investigate and uncover information related to the voting machines and systems used in the 2020 Election, the more that we realize that they never should have been used. How secure is a voting system from wrongdoing that has functionality in it that allows individuals to create ballots and then fill them out?
