LAA Research Group Releases “The Antrim Report”

Look Ahead America’s research group today released the Antrim Report, a summary and analysis of the election anomalies that occurred in that county.

Look Ahead America Executive Director Matt Braynard made the following statement:

We are proud to publish this report to set the record straight  about what happened in Antrim County in the 2020 election. Many phony, fraudulent claims about what happened in Antrim county have confused the public and buried a simple truth: the Dominion Voting Equipment machines used in this election should be decertified and replaced with an open source alternative.

From the report’s summary:

On the night of the 2020 General Election, Antrim County went to Joe Biden. This drew immediate scrutiny given that then-candidate Donald Trump had won handily four years earlier. The following day, a corrected count showed that Dominion machines had erroneously underreported Trump and that he had won Antrim County by nearly 6,000 votes.

The Allied Security Operations Group (ASOG), on behalf of DePerno Law, performed an independent investigation in Antrim County.

ASOG claimed that Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) machines in Antrim County intentionally switched votes from Trump to Biden, transmitted the results wirelessly, had an exceptionally high error rate that exceeded certification limits, and illegally wiped the ballot images in violation of state law. Democratic Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, the bipartisan Michigan Senate Oversight Committee, Dominion Voting Systems, and University of Michigan Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Dr. J. Alex Halderman – who performed an independent analysis – concluded that ASOG’s claims had no factual basis for several reasons.

Our analysis of all reports and data showed that, for the most part, the defendants correctly rebutted ASOG’s claims. No evidence suggests that Antrim County’s DVS machines had fraudulent features in their designs, were online, or suffered from wiped ballot images.

Vulnerabilities in the system did exist, however, although mostly due to human error and negligence. Due to missing poll tapes, one local race could not correctly audit or accurately account for 72 ballots. In another race, a 3-ballot discrepancy changed the outcome of the race, with machine error as a conspicuous suspect. That race also had prior scan records erased without explanation. These instances alone should decertify DVS machines.

Furthermore, our research uncovered evidence that Dominion violated its state contract because the tabulators and memory cards failed to store write-in ballot images as specified in contract point 1.1.A.23, they violated the state agreement. These points along with the tabulation errors provide sufficient cause to decertify the DVS machines.

As nobody could view the source code due to DVS products being proprietary, “black box voting” machines, nobody outside Dominion knows for sure what it contains. All of these issues could be resolved through the adoption of open source voting machines, with requirements to archive ballot images and ballot definitions.
