Fascinating. The logic and accuracy test are superficial at best. They can just write a cheating program that turns on during the election and turns off after the election. Logic and accuracy test doesn't test what happened during the election and wouldn't pick up software like that.

Really makes you wonder what these unlisted extra versions of software are?

Well done, brotha. Keep em coming.

Right after digital gas pumps came out, I remember a gas station out west where people thought they were getting ripped off by paying for more gas than they actually pumped. The EPA was called and they checked his pumps, and his pumps were found to be accurate. Yet, they weren't. You see the owner knew the EPA always tested pumps by pumping 5 gallons of gas so he had set his pumps to be exact for the first 5 gallons before an algorithm kicked in and it started skimming by pumping less than an actual gallon even though his customers were paying for a full gallon. They eventually figured it out and he was criminally charged. I believe they can rig voting machines the same way. They will be accurate to pass logic and accuracy test where they run just a few ballots, but then at some point, say the 100th ballot fed into the machine, the algorithm will kick in. This is why we can never trust the machines to allocate our votes. We must go back to voting on paper ballots and hand count our votes.

Hey Nick I think your a bit confused as to what the error was actually saying. 5.2.4 is simply a version of one of the configurations used in the Democracy suite 5.5 B(i.e. a scanner/tabulator program version etc)

Don't get me wrong there are in fact HUGE ISSUES with the 5.5B certification (as well as the 5.0, 5.0S, 5.5, 5.5A, 5.5A(ga), 5.5S, 5.5B, 5.5C) but for that "version" as you call it the EAC main page of certified D suite versions wouldn't show what you are looking for. Its a bit more complicated than that. There are HUGE problems with Dominion but honestly ES&S is WORSE believe it or not. They ALL need to go!

Well, that Configuration file was not using the APPROVED and CERTIFIED naming convention as allowed by the certification of the EAC.gov. The ImageCast Evolution (ICE) tabulator was running the code version 5.4.8.3 and therefore was part of the Dominion EMS version 5.4 (which is non-certified). If it was, that MBS file would have been 5.4.x.x along with an approved naming file format as documented by the Certification document, which also would have been identified with a SHA5 value. Unfortunately, the New Mexico Secretary of State website has removed the documentation and request for certification which was made in June-2021. The 2020 Election Cycle was run using EMS 5.4.x.x and because it isn’t documented and certified, you can replace the x value with any value you dream up. Bottom Line: the New Mexico elections were conducted and run using un-certified version of the Dominion Voting System software/firmware.

It wasn't just NM that ran un certified versions of Dominion D Suite!

This is the standard Dominion (owns ES&S also) defense - "we didn't rig anything, didn't change any votes". Sure they didn't - but they provided at least seven methods in the software for any nefarious actor to rig elections and to cover up evidence that they had been rigged.

It's kind of like a mass shooting - Dominion didn't pull any triggers, but they provided the guns, the ammo, and drove the getaway car.

Far from being a "joke", Logic and Accuracy tests are a fraud mechanism used to pad vote totals for a candidate prior to an election. In the Dominion ballot scanner manual, section 4.5, the test is described as using a prepared test deck with known vote markings to run through the ballot scanner, and tabulated results are compared to the known votes of the deck. The manual specifically states that the vote totals from the test MUST BE RESET prior to an actual election. Now, if one wanted to pad a candidates vote totals, all that would be needed is to create a test deck with votes for only one of the candidates, and conveniently "forget" to reset the vote totals.

Quite simple indeed, and this was actually found to have occurred in the NYC mayoral primary race in 2021.

It was used much more often in 2020, unfortunately.

Dominion does NOT own ES&S that isnt helpful to spread false info around. Please do research before you state things that aren't true it doesn't help people fighting the election fraud!

You're partially right, Dominion bought the part of ES&S that used to be Premier Election Systems (formerly Diebold) in 2010, but not the whole company. That acquisition and the one of Sequoia made Dominion the largest vendor of election systems in the US, followed closely by ES&S (in whose machines many issues have also been found, by the ASOG audit in Dallas county in the 2018 election.) No maker of election machines is clean.

To be complete: ES&S has approx. 45% of the counties, Dominion has approx. 40%. ES&S has more equipment out in the field. The DOJ in 2010 forced ES&S to divest parts of the purchase of Premier Voting Solutions (Diebold), because of the ES&S monopoly (70% at that time). Dominion was allowed to purchase part of the Premier systems. Currently Dominion is terminating those contracts by putting those products at end-of-life, forcing many counties to transition to the standard Dominion platform. Salt Lake County, Utah was forced in December 2020 to transition at a cost of over $2.5 million, with a backend of $1.6 million over 10-years (plus additional fees).

Not according to my sources, Dominion has 46%, ES&S 45%. Dominion's include all of the Premier (Diebold) machines after ES&S was forced to sell. We'll have to disagree.

Sorry, check your sources: 2022 numbers are ES&S 45.3% of Registred Voters; 43.4% of Precincts; 50.3% of Jurisdictions. Dominion (which includes Premier Voting Solutions (Diebold) and Sequoia Voting Systems) are 32.2% of Registered Voters; 33.2% of Precincts; 37% of Jurisdictions. Hart InterCivic Verity are 12.2% of Registered Voters; 11.1% of Precincts; 6.5% of Jurisdictions. Clear Ballot are 7% of Registered Voters; 9.1% of Precincts; 2.2% of Jurisdictions. Unisyn Voting Solutions are 3.3% of Registered Voters; 3.2% of Precincts; 4% of Jurisdictions. There are a few other small system, which don't really come into play, with the exception of Los Angeles County, which I have excluded, although it does have 7,122.542 million registered voters, with 3,383 precincts, but only one jurisdiction, from Smartmatic.

Since nearly ALL registration lists in the US are unreliable and inflated, these numbers are useless and corrupted. So it matters not what three-letter agencies you appeal to, the original information is fake.

Source is Verified Voting ORG. They obtain much of their information from the EAC.gov and the associated EAVS Survey conducted every two years, when federal elections occur. They also update along the way, but do not disclose their other sources.

I believe all this is true and so much more is causing all to be fraudulent but Commissioners don’t have authority to stop machines they can only demand in written consent of a full body vote to AG to press charges Every citizen who believes in this needs to report to the AG office and put pressure on the AGs of their states. That’s the only way!!! The bureaucracy of Commissioners and system will not allow them to do any thing it’s to grey of any area and if in a blue state they’ll never get enough Commissioners/Counties to do it! It’s a number game and the citizens need to do it!!! Bombard your AG offices and give data -proof and make AG do it. Also, file a Lawsuit and petitions to impeach the SOS.

Great to see researchers digging into this at depth. Gives those attending county commissioners meetings even more to speak about when demanding removal of the machines.

Just wanted to put a comment out there: check the SATELLITE, the only way to connect between continents. Interesting Vatican has an ‘observatory’ in AZ, with mysterious funding.
