TOMS RIVER, NJ – After the 2020 Presidential election, many conspiracy theories were floated about the validity and accuracy of the Dominion voting system by the campaign of President Donald J. Trump. Although the company refutes those claims, still, the confidence Americans have in the Dominion voting systems has weakened as a result.
In New Jersey, all but three counties use dominion voting machines and software. Warren County, Union County and Sussex County are the only ones who do not.
The company issued a statement after it was mentioned by the Trump administration.
“While Dominion Voting Systems is not named as a defendant, on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, Sidney Powell released what appears to be a very rough draft of a lawsuit against the Republican governor and secretary of state of Georgia alleging a bizarre election fraud conspiracy that—were it possible—would necessarily require the collaboration of thousands of participants, including state officeholders, bipartisan local elections officials, thousands of volunteer Election Day poll watchers in thousands of locations across the state of Georgia, federal and state government technology testing agencies, private elections service companies, and independent third-party auditors. This quite simply did not occur,” the company said. “Dominion Voting Systems is the gold standard for transparent and accountable voting equipment. The allegations included in the draft complaint are baseless, senseless, physically impossible, and unsupported by any evidence whatsoever. We stand with the state and local elected officials and bipartisan election volunteers that this suit maliciously maligns.”
Blaming the Dominion system was just one of many strategies being used by the Trump campaign.
“It’s about poll watchers who were not allowed to watch. So illegal. It’s about ballots that poured in and nobody but a few knew where they came from. … It’s about the machinery that was defective, machinery that was stopped,” Trump said.
So far, no courts have ruled on the matter and to date, no major claims against Dominion voting systems in New Jersey have been raised.
