A forensic audit of the presidential vote tally by Dominion Voting Systems software used in Antrim County, Michigan, claims to have shown a more than 68% error rate, with auditors claiming the system intentionally creates the errors so the machine can have them "adjudicated" – allowing individuals to change the result.

The audit was conducted by Allied Security Operations Group, a group backed by the Trump campaign, and does not confirm that Dominion engaged in any wrongdoing or acted improperly. The Trump auditors claim the error rate is unusual considering the Federal Election Commission allows a maximum error rate of just 0.0008 percent for computerized voting systems.

Allied Security claimed "The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail."

Dominion denied that there were software glitches in Antrim County or anywhere else. In a statement the company said "isolated human errors not involving Dominion” were at fault. The Detroit Free Press reported the elections office failed to update the programming in their tabulators after requiring changes to their ballot, the company said.

The audit was released Monday by state court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer of the 13th Circuit Court of Michigan in a case brought by county resident William Bailey against Antrim County, Michigan.

Neither the court nor any legal body in Michigan has confirmed the accuracy of the report or its claims

The lawsuit allowed Allied Security to take forensic images of the county's 22 tabulators and review other election-related material.

Dominion Voting Systems dismissed the audit, claiming it is the subject of a "continuing malicious and widespread disinformation campaign" to undermine confidence in the Nov. 3 election.

In a statement posted to Dominion’s website, the company harshly criticized the report:

“This week, Russ Ramsland's Allied Security Operations Group—a biased, non-independent organization—released a severely flawed ‘forensic audit report’ that further contributes to the continuing malicious and widespread disinformation campaign aimed at eroding confidence in the integrity of the 2020 presidential election. Ramsland is a notorious conspiracy theorist, and gave a presentation in 2018 in which he claimed the "Deep State" was formed when the Muslim Brotherhood, President George H.W. Bush's father, leftists, and George Soros came together in Nazi Germany in the 1930s—although Soros was born in 1930. He also falsely claimed in an affidavit that in Detroit, voter turnout was 139.29% and that turnout in North Muskegon was an eye-popping 781.97%; in reality, the turnout in those places was 50.88% and 78.11%, respectively. His group was not hired by any court or government body, but instead by plaintiffs that have submitted sham "evidence" across the country. These cases have been roundly debunked in courts from coast-to-coast. U.S. Election Assistance Commission-sanctioned, third-party, independent test labs are best positioned to conduct fair, non-partisan analyses. The claims made in the report are technologically impossible. Dominion machines did not—and could not have—"switched" or enabled the "switching" of any votes. A hand count of the paper ballots as well as a review by any independent, federally accredited Voting System Test Laboratory (VSTL) will confirm this fact.”

Dominion systems are used across Michigan and in as many as 30 states, including several disputed battleground states.

Results certified by Democrat officials in Michigan say Biden won the state by 154,000, but President Trump's legal team and his allies continue to question the results.
