Yet another investigation into the results of the voting in Antrim County in the 2020 presidential election has turned up no evidence of fraud.
Antrim gained national attention when a clerical error briefly made it appear that Joe Biden was winning the heavily-Republican county. The mistake was quickly corrected, and Donald Trump won the county’s vote easily.
J. Alex Halderman is a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. Halderman was asked to investigate the incident by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Attorney General Dana Nessel.
In his 17-page report, Halderman blames the snafu on human error. He found no evidence of a security breach, no evidence of fraud, and confirmed that the results reported by the voting software matched the poll tapes printed by individual scanners, with only minor discrepancies.
Halderman specifically refutes conclusions reached in an earlier report by Allied Security Operations Group, which Trump supporters have used as the basis for fraud claims, noting that the ASOG report contains “an extraordinary number of false, inaccurate, or unsubstantiated statements and conclusions.”
He does include some specific recommendations for improved election procedures in the future.
