US President Donald Trump has continued to amplify his baseless rant against the election results which has projected Joe Biden, a Democrat, as 46th President of the United States. Trump has targeted Dominion Voting Systems for his unproven claims of electoral fraud, tweeting an unsubstantiated story from One America News Network, a far-right, pro-Trump cable channel.
“Dominion deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide.” Citing “data analysis”, then Trump tweeted that 221,000 Pennsylvania votes switched from Trump to Biden and 941,000 Trump votes got deleted.
Dominion Voting Systems Corporation is a North America-based company which provides voting machines and tabulator in the United States and Canada. As many as 28 states used Dominion’s voting machines, or tabulators, to scan paper ballots in US elections.
Dominion Voting Systems denied claims about alleged software issues with its voting systems. The company fact-checked that deletion of 2.7 million votes for President Trump, including 941,000 in Pennsylvania, is “mathematically impossible.” It stated that Dominion serves 14 counties in Pennsylvania that produced 1.3 million votes and fifty-two per cent of those votes went to President Trump.
According to a New York Times , ‘The Dominion software was used in only two of the five counties that had problems in Michigan and Georgia, and in every instance there was a detailed explanation for what had happened. In all of the cases, software did not affect the vote counts.’
“Boards of County Canvassers, which are composed of 2 Democrats and 2 Republicans, review the printed totals tape from each tabulator during the canvass to verify the reported vote totals are correct,” read by the Dominion voting system.
