Just finished watching OAN's Dominionizing the vote. Ron has not brought this up yet. I have a letter of Eric Coomer referencing an exploit in Dominion Voting Systems that may explain a lot of issues. I believe this letter(also copied below) written by Eric Coomer in March of last year and sent to Douglas Kellner, Co-Chair of NYS Board of Elections could be crucial in explaining the anomalies we've been hearing about in Georgia and across some other states. Can't overstate enough that this is just a hypothesis, and I would ask that https://twitter.com/CodeMonkeyZ validate the following:

Hypothesis

Dominion and local county officials are exploiting the ADA capabilities of the ImageCast Evolution (ICE) tabulator. Within the ICE, there is a ballot marking printer. The ballot marking printer within the system can only mark a ballot during an “accessible” voting session. The printer is located in a completely separate area from the main ballot path that leads to the ballot box. Once a voter with disabilities has marked his/her ballot with the included printer, the ballot is scanned, and a review of the choices selected by the voter with disabilities is provided in both visual and audio formats. Once this review is complete, there is no way for the ballot marking device to make additional marks on the ballot.

Eric Coomer specifically states in his letter below that "Post-election audits can identify statistical anomalies such as excessive over-votes, which is the only likely outcome of the hypothetical exploit presented on the internet.".

Have we seen excessive over-votes?

Yes, all over the place and the explanation provided to us are mail-in ballots (red wave). But with this scenario being exploited, it's possible that these excessive over-votes are also due to "accessible" voter sessions. Could it be possible that in some states, officials are attributing over-votes to mail-in ballots when in fact they are coming from blank ballots within these facilities?

How it would be done?

You would need to have someone enable the "accessible" voting session and have enough time to run stacks of blank ballots through the machine. I would imagine this scenario if it were to result in a recount or audit would pass because each ballot is blank/unique/anonymous. Not sure there is any way of knowing whether a ballot was triggered via an "accessible" voting session or not. If you were able to tell, a high number of of these would indicate an abnormal quantity of voters hearing or visually impaired.

This exploit possibly explains the following

  • ballots with no creases
  • ballots with printer perfect selections only for Biden
  • ballots with printer perfect selections (selections made by printer, not by pen)
  • explanations of having to pause/stop counts for significant amounts of time

What would this require?

  • blank ballots
  • ton of time
  • election officials claiming they are counting previously cast ballots when in reality they are "casting" ballots in bulk via "accessible" voting sessions

March 8, 2019 Mr. Douglas A. Kellner Co-Chair New York State Board of Elections 40 N. Pearl St., Ste. 5 Albany, NY 12207-2109 Dear Commissioner Kellner:

Thank you for your memo dated March 7th. Dominion is taking all cyber security threats very seriously in the current environment and appreciates the chance to respond.

Before addressing the various safeguards for the ImageCast Evolution (ICE), I would like to comment on a fundamental viewpoint of the IT researcher upon whom you are relying. He states that combining ballot marking capabilities with ballot tabulators into a single system is a “really bad idea.” However, security maximalists often overlook the fact that voting systems are designed to meet a critical balance between security and accessibility.

The ImageCast Evolution (ICE) tabulator was designed as an inclusive response to the needs of States that are both committed to hand-marked paper ballots and to private, accessible ballot-casting for voters of all abilities. One of the traditional challenges with the State of New York’s legacy accessible system is that while all ballots look the same, some voters who require ballot marking accessibility also require external help in transporting a marked ballot to a tabulator. This “separate but equal” stance is not acceptable in today’s technology marketplace. A key tenant of accessible solutions is to allow all voters to vote privately and independently, regardless of ability.

As you may know, in the federal 2005 Voluntary Voting Systems Guidelines (VVSG) that were issued after the State’s acquisition of the Plan B machines, a requirement was added to specifically include the case of a voter who had both severe visual and physical limitations. The ICE is the first – and to our knowledge the only – certified solution that meets this requirement within a hand-marked paper system. Notably, the ICE tabulator was designed to be compatible with the current ImageCast tabulator system used in New York. The Plan-B Ballot Marking Device (BMD) tabulator has been end of life for quite some time, and some counties are looking to replace their ten year-old BMDs as needed, while leveraging another ten years of useful life from the rest of the tabulation system.

Following the ICE’s 2018 certification in New York, several counties are in the process of upgrading their ADA capabilities, making them among the most accessible counties in the country.

To be clear, the current speculation of a critical flaw in the ImageCast Evolution tabulator is not based on any technical examination of the device or the firmware and software on the machine. It is based solely on the fact that a printer exists somewhere in the tabulator.

The ImageCast Evolution has gone through multiple federal and state certification campaigns. In addition, this system has been subjected to red team security vulnerability testing campaigns in individual states. No code review, or penetration testing effort, has ever identified the existence of a printer in the Image Cast Evolution as even a low-probability threat vector.

The ICE provides the only truly independent voting experience for voters with disabilities. The ballot marking printer within the system can only mark a ballot during an “accessible” voting session. The printer is located in a completely separate area from the main ballot path that leads to the ballot box. Once a voter with disabilities has marked his/her ballot with the included printer, the ballot is scanned, and a review of the choices selected by the voter with disabilities is provided in both visual and audio formats. Once this review is complete, there is no way for the ballot marking device to make additional marks on the ballot. The ballot does not travel along the path with the printer once the review is complete.

A wholesale replacement of the official, certified firmware would be required to completely change how the device functions. A myriad of physical and procedural processes exist to ensure the integrity of the election. Post-election audits can identify statistical anomalies such as excessive over-votes, which is the only likely outcome of the hypothetical exploit presented on the internet. All ICE machines can also be audited to verify that the official certified firmware is unaltered.

Since its introduction in 2013, the ICE system has been used by election administrators across the U.S. to tabulate hundreds of official elections successfully, as well as to complete required post-election audits. The ICE has never been noted as being deficient or compromised in any state. It is worthy to note that the acquisition of ICE tabulators is adding excess capacity to the ImageCast Precinct tabulators that are already in the polling places across New York state, adding a barrier against theoretical threat vectors.

Dominion Voting takes all cyber threats very seriously and routinely subjects its products to third-party, independent security reviews. It is our position that the exercise of reasonable diligence by the New York State Board of Elections should not give weighted authority to opinions posted to the Internet without the benefit of any actual testing over documented testing reports performed by accredited third-party agencies, which can overwhelmingly demonstrate the company’s conformance to state and federal law.

Ron had the best answer. You need to know who managed these machines and investigate. Would likely be part of a larger criminal investigation

Exactly.. Which is kind of what they're hinting at when Rudy said something like, "they didn't all decide to do this on election day by themselves. And who knows, maybe who's behind it all is as easy as looking into who hired the rental companies"

But maybe we here at the Donald have already spoiler alerted ourselves already by finding out it was the whole Facebook investment into the election. Maybe other companies just like it following suit, idk..

Math ... what percentage of the population would use accessibility features to cast votes.

Visual impairment is about 10% of gen population ... full blindness is less.
