According to Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox, a glitch in the election software used in Michigan Antrim County had incorrectly directed votes to Biden, moving thousands of votes into Trump’s total.
According to Just the News “the software had reportedly caused a significant number of votes to be allotted to Biden in a county that has for years been reliably red. In the presumed final count, Biden had originally led in the county by roughly 3,000 votes. Revised totals show that Trump won the county by around 2,500.
Addressing the alleged software glitch, Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said Friday during a press conference that “47 counties [in Michigan] use this same software in the same capacity.”
“These counties that use this software need to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies,” she said.
Per BPR, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, responded to concerns about the glitch by denying that it was a glitch at all.
“The erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim County was a result of an accidental error on the part of the Antrim County Clerk,” she claimed in a statement.
“The equipment and software did not malfunction and all ballots were properly tabulated. However, the clerk accidentally did not update the software used to collect voting machine data and report unofficial results.”
