(bigleaguepolitics)Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox has revealed that software used in one crucial Michigan county miscounted 6,000 Republican ballots for Democrat candidates, with election officials finding the error after hand-counting ballots.
One Michigan county clerk caught a glitch in tabulation software so they hand counted votes and found the glitch caused 6,000 votes to go to Biden + Democrats that were meant for Trump and Republicans. 47 MI counties used this software. All must check now! pic.twitter.com/21AXyJZDZi

The miscalculation was reportedly revealed to Antrim County election officials when they hand counted election materials, finding that the sum totals were much different than what their computer software had calculated.
“Antrim County had to hand count all of the ballots, and these counties that use the software need to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies,” Cox said. “The people of Michigan deserve a transparent and open process.”
Chairwoman Cox went on to claim that the Republican Party of Michigan had discovered that the same faulty software was used in a whopping 47 Michigan counties!
GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel cited the mickey mouse election reporting glitch as a severe blow to the credibility of the state’s election system.
We have documented irregularities in Michigan.
In Wayne County, poll watchers were kept in the dark with blocked windows & padlocked doors.

A Michigan Republican candidate for Oakland County Commissioner was projected to lose to a Democrat on election night by just more than 100 votes, but election officials released ballot data that revealed Adam Kochenderfer had actually won by more than 1,000 votes on Wednesday. The officials cited “computer error” in the reversal of the election outcome when explaining the situation to Kochenderfer.
Existing Michigan ballot counts have Donald Trump trailing Joe Biden by approximately 150,000 votes, with supposedly 99% of the total count completed.
If one county can miscount ballot totals by more than a thousand votes, how can the people of Michigan assume that the same practices used in 47 other counties are accurate? Antrim County only has a population of roughly 24,000, meaning that county officials initially miscounted at least 25% of the total ballots cast.
