Dominion Voting Systems Under Fire for “Hundreds of Discrepancies” Including “Reversed Totals” and “Zero Votes” for Some Candidates in Recent Elections

By ABC News. Puerto Rico’s elections commission said Tuesday that it’s reviewing its contract with a U.S. electronic voting company after hundreds of discrepancies were discovered following the island’s heated primaries.

The problem [reportedly] stemmed from a software issue that caused machines supplied by Dominion Voting Systems to incorrectly calculate vote totals [such that] vote counts were lower than the paper ones in some cases, and some machines reversed certain totals or reported zero votes for some candidates. . .

More than 6,000 Dominion voting machines were used in Puerto Rico’s primaries, with the company stating that software issues stemmed from the digital files used to export results from the machines. . .

In a surprise upset, Jenniffer González, Puerto Rico’s congressional representative, beat Gov. Pedro Pierluisi in the primary held by the New Progressive Party. Meanwhile, Puerto Rico Rep. Jesús Manuel Ortiz defeated Sen. Juan Zaragoza in the primary held by their Popular Democratic Party.

Both parties reported hundreds of ballots showing inaccurate results, with the PNP reporting over 700 errors and the PPD pointing to some 350 discrepancies. These inaccuracies affected ballots for positions including governor, mayor and resident commissioner.
