GEORGIA – In the above video with Natalie Harp of OAN, Garland Favorito, president of the election integrity group, VoterGA, explains their new lawsuit seeking an injunction against using the Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5 voting system in GA. Favorito reveals that these specific Dominion voting machines have already been declared to be in violation of GA law by a federal judge last October, just before the 2020 election. The scathing order (attached below) was 140 pages long and on page 81-82 the judge declared that these systems are illegal in GA. Because it was too close to the election to make a change, the machines were allowed to be used in the 2020 election anyway. Favorito et al are now seeking declaratory and injunctive relief to ban those Dominion machines in the state of Georgia.
“We want to take this issue immediately into court and get a ruling as fast as we can. I don’t know how any court can say that we’re not deserving of relief after the very scathing ruling and order that judge Totenberg made in that case. She considered a mountain of evidence, probably the most evidence that has ever been presented in a case in Georgia and she reached that conclusion. She was very diligent in her order. It was 140 pages but on page 81 and page 82 she declared that these systems ARE illegal, and we want relief for that for the people of Georgia. So we are intent on getting that relief as fast as we can.”– Garland Favorito, President VoterGA
“Georgia’s Election Code mandates the use of the BMD system as the uniform mode of voting for all in-person voters in federal and statewide elections. O.C.G.A. § 21-2-300(a)(2). The statutory provisions mandate voting on “electronic ballot markers” that: (1) use “electronic technology to independently and privately mark a paper ballot at the direction of an elector, interpret ballot selections, communicate such interpretation for elector verification, and print an elector verifiable paper ballot;” and (2) “produce paper ballots which are marked with the elector’s choices in a format readable by the elector” O.C.G.A. § 21-2-2(7.1); O.C.G.A. § 21-2-300(a)(2). Plaintiffs and other voters who wish to vote in-person are required to vote on a system that does none of those things. Rather, the evidence shows that the Dominion BMD system does not produce a voter-verifiable paper ballot or a paper ballot marked with the voter’s choices in a format readable by the voter because the votes are tabulated solely from the unreadable QR code. Thus, under Georgia’s mandatory voting system for “voting at the polls”73 voters must cast a BMD generated ballot tabulated using a computer generated barcode that has the potential to contain information regarding their voter choices that does not match what they enter on the BMD (as reflected in the written text summary), or could cause a precinct scanner to improperly tabulate their votes.”– Judge Amy Totenberg, CURLING vs RAFFENSPERGER FULL OPINION AND ORDER, Pg. 81-82
