A Michigan county conjured up feelings of “deja vu” for many Michiganders and election integrity activists across the country this week as they discovered a “small concern” with their election sofware.
Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum (D-Onondaga) issued a statement regarding the election problem that was discovered recently during “pre-election testing”.
“It was brought to the attention of County Clerk Byrum by a local clerk conducting their pre-election testing that there was a small concern with the election programming that would need to be fixed.”
In a statement from Clerk Byrum, she said:
“My staff, in consultation with our election vendor, discovered the root of the problem was the removal of the Lansing Township Annexation proposal ordered off the ballot last minute and were able to remediate it within days… I find it disappointing that one of the local clerks has chosen to sensationalize this situation by bringing it to the press. Their sole motivation must be a misguided attempt to undermine the public’s confidence in our elections, and I find it reprehensible.”
WILX10 goes on to say that “discovering the fix before the election is the process [pre election testing] working. Clerks will take the new programming and conduct public accuracy testing, as required under law, and this election will run smoothly.”
Prior to publishing, The Gateway Pundit reached out to Clerk Byrum with specific questions regarding this situation and actions taken to remedy it. It is eerily familiar. In fact, it occurred in the same state in the 2020 election.
Remember Antrim County? Votes were flipped in Antrim because, according to experts, Clerk Sheryl Guy updated an individual precinct without updating the remaining precincts accordingly. After all, they weren’t impacted by this last minute ballot change so why update them?
According to a state’s “expert” in the Antrim County case, the way ballots are designed, a simple removal or addition to the ballot can cause a counting error in all the subsequent races. And that error would overlap into all the subsequent precincts based on alphabetical order.
The discrepancy can be read about here, as it may have also occurred in Dekalb County, GA in the 2022 Democratic Primary, but no one bothered to recount the rest of the races outside of Michelle Long Spears race, which flipped her from 3rd place to 1st place in the hand recount. Similarly, the Antrim County hand count revealed votes flipped in the Presidential race in the 2020 election. But what was also discovered in Antrim, but not explored in Dekalb, was the flips that occurred down ballot:
Strangely, no one in Antrim hand counted the rest of those races to prove (or disprove) J. Alex Halderman’s theory. And no one bothered considering Halderman’s theory in Dekalb. And now we have a precursor to Halderman’s theory that may have occurred in Ingham on their Dominion Voting Systems. It is important that people understand the significance of minor changes like this, even beyond the potential software manipulation.
“One of the most common vulnerabilities
exploited is the natural human tendency to assume a discrepancy is the result of an error rather than a
product of a deliberate act.” -Col. Sidney McNeil Guiterrez
The Gateway Pundit will update this article as I hear back from Clerk Byrum’s office.
