(FreedomBeacon.com)- An election report from Tennessee was recently issued by the US Elections Assistance Commission (EAC) that claimed an incorrect code was found on Dominion software certified by the EAC.
How does system software get certified with erroneous code on it?
There appear to be a few issues with the voting machines used across the US. We’ve already reported that voting machines were used in Pennsylvania without being adequately hardened.
We know these machines are not properly ‘hardened’ because experts discovered software on the devices that would have prevented the machines from being certifiable. When machines are hardened, they are certified with the most up-to-date software needed for use and without any software that should not be there. In the case of election machines used throughout the US, the machines should not be used with any extra software loaded on them.
On Monday, the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) released a report describing an inquiry into a voting machine problem reported by Tennessee. On October 26, 2021, the isolated incident occurred in Williamson County, Tennessee. The manufacturer, Dominion Voting Systems, is fixing an isolated code error detected by the EAC’s Testing and Certification Division.
In Tennessee, legal ballots were grouped with provisional ballots. A real-time hand count ensured an accurate and secure election. The EAC was alerted to this issue by public reporting and state officials.
Following a state probe, the EAC opened a formal investigation on January 11, 2022. On-site testing in Tennessee in January 2022 was part of the inquiry. On February 14, 2022, the EAC received more information from the manufacturer that identified the issue as a source code fault in the scanner. A formal notification was sent to Dominion Voting Systems asking for a repair. The EAC underwent the repair on February 18, 2022. The EAC’s Testing and Certification Division and voting system test lab have determined that this code patch resolves the issue.
Alaska and Iowa were alerted of the anomaly as part of the inquiry. Alaska is the only state presently using the affected configuration. Aside from the Tennessee event, there are no other reports of this phenomenon.
