The reason people keep calling for investigations into the 2020 audit is because new information continues to appear that has many scratching their heads.
On Thursday there were 7,000 affidavits delivered in the state of Michigan that alleged voter fraud took place, Just The News reported.
Michigan Conservation Coalition spokesperson Matt Seely alleged that thousands of Michigan voters are questioning the integrity of the election.
“If we do a deep-dive forensic audit similar to Arizona, it will do either one of two things,” he said. “It will prove that all of the politicians who say there’s nothing to see there, that they were right. Or it will prove that there’s a big problem with the integrity of our elections and that we need to address it in a major way.”
He said that it is not a partisan issue, but noted one poll that showed that 70 percent of Republicans do not believe that the 2020 was free and fair.
There was also another survey that said between 20-30% of Democrats said it was “very likely” that Democrats “stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win.”
“If the politicians who are trying to stop this from taking place truly believe there’s nothing to see there, then what would be the harm in just proving to the electorate that the concerns are unwarranted?” Seeley said.Advertisement
“Why did 45 other governors dealing with states of emergency and COVID, didn’t feel it was necessary to change election rules and procedures and violate the U.S Constitution?” he said. “We owe voters the truth.”
Those gathered say Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s audit only recounted votes and didn’t go far enough to inspect votes and ensure those voting were on the Qualified Voter Roll (QVR).
Former state Sen. Patrick Colbeck said it only took 150 affidavits to get the attention of Arizona legislators.
Colbeck called for a new hearing, alleging election machines were hackable. He claims Antrim County now can’t find 1,061 voters in the QVR.
Colbeck said he’s aiming for legislators to complete a forensic audit. If such an audit shows evidence of fraud, it would significantly affect the election. He says lawmakers could demand an audit.
But Benson said that “Enough is enough.”
“Those sincerely wanting credible audits of our elections should be reminded that here in Michigan election officials — including 1,300 Republican, Democrat and non-partisan local clerks — have conducted more than 250 actual, by the book, transparent audits of the November 2020 election — and each confirmed that it was safe and secure, and the results are an accurate reflection of the will of the people,” he said.
“We only need look to Arizona to see that anyone who claims they want access to our secure election materials and machines under the guise of performing a fake audit is hiding the fact that they are actually trying to find ways to deceive the public about the integrity of our elections to further their own partisan agenda and have taxpayers foot the bill,” he said.
This news came after Colorado’s Democrat Secretary of State Jena Griswold banned having an Arizona style audit in the state.
The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office today adopted emergency elections rules prohibiting third-parties from accessing voting equipment in the state of Colorado.
“Colorado’s elections are considered the safest in the nation, and we must remain steadfast in our dedication to security,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold. “Along those lines, no third-party person or vendor will be permitted access to voting equipment in our state. We will not risk the state’s election security nor perpetuate The Big Lie. Sham audits have no place in Colorado.”
The new and amended rules, which have been implemented immediately, reinforce who can access state-certified voting systems. In order to access any component of a county’s voting system, a person must have passed a comprehensive criminal background check and be either an employee of the county clerk, an employee of the voting system provider, an employee of the Secretary of State’s Office, or an appointed election judge.
The rules further enable the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office to limit or prohibit the use of, as well as decertify, any voting systems component in the event of a break-in its chain-of-custody or other hardware security compromises, such that its security and integrity can no longer be verified.
A third-party vendor with no election experience is currently performing a faulty, unsecure election audit in Arizona, and calls for such sham audits have been spreading in other states. Several Colorado counties have been contacted by third parties offering to conduct audits. Colorado already administers post-election Risk Limiting Audits after every statewide election, which gives a statistical level of confidence that the outcome of an election is correct.
