Michigan county requests state audit of 2020 election results
Cheboygan County Michigan officially requested that the state government conduct an audit of its 2020 election results and look into whether the Dominion voting machines used were tampered with.
“As commissioners, we have heard from many of our constituents expressing concerns/questions related to the November 3, 2020 election,…We believe we have a responsibility to address these concerns/questions,” the letter states.
The letter details three main areas of concern that the county has with regard to the results from the 2020 presidential election.
The first area of concern relates to the accuracy of the Dominion vote tabulator. The commissioner’s question “whether the actual vote tally for the presidential election within Cheboygan County was accurately reported by the county’s Dominion vote tabulator and Election System and Software machine.” “We believe the best evidence of this
accuracy is to conduct a hand recount of the Cheboygan County presidential election ballots and to compare the results of that hand recount to the electronic vote results that were reported,” the letter says.
The second area of concern relates to whether or not “the actual vote tally for the presidential election within Cheboygan County was accurately reported to the state election officials.”
Third, the commissioners would like to know “whether the county’s Dominion vote tabulator and/or Election System and Software machine had a modem installed capable of connecting to the Internet. In connection with this question, and more importantly, whether there is any evidence that the county’s Dominion vote tabulator and/or Election System and Software machine was actually in communication with any unauthorized computer and whether there is any evidence that any unauthorized computer actually manipulated the actual presidential election vote tally within Cheboygan County.”
The county will send the letter to Jonathan Brater, the man appointed to be Director of Michigan’s Department of Elections by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. Benson, a democrat has repeatedly defended the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in Michigan, showing Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by 154,000 votes.
Benson joined CNN to discuss the calls for an audit of the election in Cheboygan, saying that the election has been “the most scrutinized election” in the state’s history and claims that there have already been 250 audits done in the state to ensure the integrity of the election.
A representative for Benson’s office told the Washington Examiner that the state will look over the letter and will respond “to the commission directly.”
