Dominion Voting Systems has receipts disproving Trump’s fraud claims
The Denver-based vote tabulation software company is pushing back against President Trump and right-wing media claims of voter fraud in Pennsylvania
This week, multiple conservative news sources have made the claim that vote-counting software used in the 2020 election was programmed in now President-elect Joe Biden‘s favor.
According to USA Today, numerous right-wing outlets are accusing Dominion Voting Systems of either deleting votes for President Donald Trump or switching votes for the president to Biden.
On the air earlier this week, One America News Network‘s Lilia Fifield made the claim. The report can be viewed on the site Mediaite.
“Election systems across the country are found to have deleted millions of votes cast for President Trump,” Fifield said. “According to an unaudited analysis of data obtained from Edison Research, states using Dominion Voting Systems may have switched as many as 435,000 votes from President Trump to Joe Biden, and the author also finds another 2.7 million Trump votes appear to have been deleted by Dominion including almost one million truckloads in Pennsylvania alone.”
Dominion Voting Systems, based in Denver, sells electronic voting hardware and software in the U.S. and Canada.
Similar claims appeared on Gateway Pundit, giving credit to findings on thedonald.win, USA Today reports.
Trump himself repeated the claim on Twitter, maintaining that 221,000 Pennsylvania votes were switched from Trump to Biden. He also claimed that 941,000 Trump votes in Pennsylvania were deleted.
A national coalition announced Thursday that there is no evidence that any voting software deleted or changed votes in last week’s election. In fact, the coalition described the election as “the most secure in American history.” It added that all states with close results have paper records of each vote that allow for a recount, if necessary.
This week, Dominion Voting Systems released a statement denying allegations that its machines had deleted or changed votes.
“Dominion Voting Systems categorically denies false assertions about vote switching issues with our voting systems,” the statement reads. “Vote deletion/switching assertions are completely false.”
Dominion says the claim that its machines deleted 941,000 Trump votes in Pennsylvania is “impossible” because Dominion only serves 14 counties in the state, producing a total of 1.3 million votes — 52%, or 676,000, of which went to Trump. That only leaves 624,000 other votes, fewer than what Trump claims were switched.
