Amistad Project: Forensic audit of Dominion voting machines in
Antrim County, Michigan reveals 68% error rate
December 15, 2020
The Amistad Project of the non-partisan Thomas More Society is
demanding the preservation of evidence in five key swing states in
response to a bombshell report detailing the results of a forensic
audit of Dominion voting machines in Antrim County, Michigan, which
was approved for release by 13th Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer.
"We're filing in all swing states a demand that judges step in and
preserve evidence to avoid it from being destroyed or spoiled by the
intentional or reckless acts of executive officials," said Phill
Kline, director of the Amistad Project, which has previously filed
election litigation in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and
The report claims that the "tabulation log for the forensic
examination of the server for Antrim County from December 6, 2020
consists of 15,676 individual events, of which 10,667 or 68.05% of
the events were recorded errors." The Federal Election Commission
allows a maximum error rate of just 0.0008 percent.
"The error rate detailed in this report has implications for every
state where we have litigation, and it comes on a day when officials
are blocking legislators from having their say about elections in
their states," Kline said. "This joins with other compelling
evidence that the elections in these states cannot be certified
under the law."
believe the error rate in Antrim County is an intentional flaw built
into the software in order to compel "bulk adjudication" of ballots
by election officials — a process that allows alteration of ballots
with minimal or no meaningful oversight. Antrim County maintains
records of the adjudication process for previous elections, but
records for the 2020 election were either deleted or never entered,
making it impossible to determine whether adjudicated ballots
accurately reflected the intent of the voters.
The Michigan Bureau of Election also issued a memorandum on December
1 instructing election clerks that electronic poll book files must
be deleted from all laptops and flash drives. The Amistad Project is
asking judges in all swing states to issue emergency orders
preventing state and local officials from destroying such evidence.
"In Michigan, the Secretary of State has ordered deletion of e-poll
books and other evidence and also has taken affirmative steps to
seal forensic evidence regarding the flaws in the operation of
Dominion machines from both the public and from legislators who need
access to this information in order to perform their constitutional
duty," Kline said. "This joins with the Michigan Attorney General
threatening legislators with criminal investigation and possible
prosecution if they disagree with her, and the Michigan Governor and
other officials shutting down the peoples' house and preventing them
from gathering today to perform their constitutional duty."
