President Donald Trump on Thursday accused Dominion Voting Systems of having “DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE.”
Trump tweeted a quote he attributed to One America News Network and its chief White House correspondent Chanel Rion as saying: “REPORT: DOMINION DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE. DATA ANALYSIS FINDS 221,000 PENNSYLVANIA VOTES SWITCHED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BIDEN. 941,000 TRUMP VOTES DELETED. STATES USING DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES FROM TRUMP TO BIDEN.”
Twitter flagged this post with a note that says, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
Edward Perez, an expert in election technology with the Open Source Election Technology Institute, told Pennsylvania’s The Morning Call that “Many of the claims being asserted about Dominion and questionable voting technology is misinformation at best and, in many cases, they’re outright disinformation. I’m not aware of any evidence of specific things or defects in Dominion software that would lead one to believe that votes had been recorded or counted incorrectly.”
However, many, including some lawmakers, have criticized Dominion software for not preventing glitches and other irregularities from occurring in voting machines. Dominion also bought Sequoia Voting Systems in 2010, which raised questions due to accusations that the latter was involved in rigging the 2004 Venezuelan elections.
