SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT: FACTS & RUMORS
Claims about Dominion Systems being linked to widespread fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election are COMPLETELY false.
Dominion systems do NOT "create systemic fraud or influence election results."
Key Facts About Dominion
- Dominion is a proud American company with no ties to China or Venezuela.
- Dominion has no business ties to or affiliations with any partisan political officials or their family members.
- Thousands of documented post-election hand counts and audits since November 2020, including forensic audits in Arizona and Georgia by federally accredited Voting Systems Test labs, publicly demonstrated that Dominion voting systems are accurate and reliable.
- Multiple U.S. government agencies and election customers across 28 states have conclusively affirmed that no voting system deleted, lost, or changed votes in the 2020 presidential election. A declassified intelligence report on foreign threats released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), found "no indications that any foreign actor attempted to alter any technical aspect of the voting process." The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) also released a report concluding there is “no evidence” that foreign governments or other actors interfered with the elections, and claims about foreign governments manipulating or owning election infrastructure used in the 2020 elections are “not credible.” The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said it was the most secure election in U.S. history, and former U.S. Attorney General William Barr confirmed there is no evidence of widespread fraud.
- MITRE's National Election Security Lab's data analysis report (Feb. 2021) involving Dominion systems in eight key battleground states, notes that "evidence of compromise or fraud was not found."
On Voting System Security
All Dominion voting systems are tested and certified by the U.S. EAC and state election authorities according to law.
- Voting systems are designed and certified by the U.S. government to be closed systems that do not rely on Internet connectivity for use.
- Dominion builds its own software code. It does NOT use code from any other companies.
- All votes are cast and counted in the U.S. by local election officials. This data is not sent outside the U.S.
- Remote access to voting machines does not exist.
- Voting system security practices are based on a combination of strong technical, chain of custody, and physical security controls.
- Pre-election testing and post-election canvassing allow election officials to identify and resolve discrepancies with unofficial results, validate vote counts, and ensure the accuracy of vote totals for certification.
- Dominion voting systems produce paper ballots and paper records, as well as digital ballot images, for 100% reliable audits and recounts.
- State and local officials run elections, NOT Dominion. Voters and bipartisan political party observers can witness every step of the election process.
- Dominion has a coordinated vulnerability program for handling findings from good faith security researchers.
