The results of the Antrim County, Michigan, presidential election, after presenting Democratic candidate Joe Biden as the winner, had to reverse the result by confirming that the computer software “failed and caused a vote calculation error.” The Trump administration will call for a manual recount in any area where the same software was used.
With a 98% vote count, the state of Michigan is calling Joe Biden the winner by a mere 146,123 votes, but Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox said that the software used in most counties for the vote count is clearly showing flaws in favor of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
“If all this wasn’t enough, in Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000-vote swing against our candidates,” Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox said during a news conference reported by Breitbart.
In Antrim County, it was confirmed that thousands of votes were mistakenly counted for Biden and Democratic Sen. Gary Peters instead of Republican candidate John James, causing the previously announced official results to be reversed.
The corrected election results now show that President Trump won Antrim County by more than 2,000 votes. There are still 47 other counties in the state of Michigan that used the same software that experienced this error in the recount.
More than half of Michigan’s 83 counties used the same controversial software for the vote count, while the difference between the two candidates is less than 150,000 votes in favor of Biden, so you have to wonder what would happen if other counties also “erroneously” cast the results?
Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox made clear the answer to this question, “Antrim County had to hand-count all of the ballots, and these counties that use this software need to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies.”
According to Fox News, Antrim County Election Secretary Sheryl Guy said it is unclear whether human error or a technical problem caused the error. It was only discovered because the Democratic victory was inconsistent with the county’s conservative leanings. By requesting a manual review by Republican observers, the error was confirmed.
