Dominion was used in Antrim County Michigan and appears to have shown Biden beating Trump by 3,000 votes, when in fact Trump beat Biden by 2,500. It was apparently caught because it was an anomaly for the Republican county. It is used in many US States and major metropolitan areas, including the swing states. Grounds for Texas’ rejection, of this Canadian company, are outlined below. Dominion presumably refers to Canada’s quasi-independent status, under the British Crown, declared in 1867.
According to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office in early 2020 (excerpt):
“The following are the findings, based on written evidence submitted by the Vendor in support of its application for certification, oral evidence presented at the examination, and the findings of the voting system examiners as set out in their written reports.
The examiner reports identified multiple hardware and software issues that preclude the Office of the Texas Secretary of State from determining that the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system satisfies each of the voting-system requirements set forth in the Texas Election Code. Specifically, the examiner reports raise concerns about whether the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system is suitable for its intended purpose; operates efficiently and accurately; and is safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation. Therefore, the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system and corresponding hardware devices do not meet the standards for certification prescribed by Section 122.001 of the Texas Election Code.
Accordingly, based upon the foregoing, I hereby deny certification of Dominion Voting Systems’ Democracy Suite 5.5-A system for use in Texas elections.
Signed under my hand and seal of office, this ~day of½ 2020.
DEPUTY SECRETARY OF STATE”

See: “Antrim County still red after vote tally snafu showed Joe Biden winning it
By Paul Egan, Detroit Free Press Posted Nov 6, 2020 at 11:39 AM
LANSING — Antrim County has posted updated and revised numbers for the presidential and U.S. senate races after discovering major errors in the numbers the county initially sent to the Secretary of State’s Office.
The revised numbers — arrived at after manually entering the results from printed tabulated tapes for all 16 precincts — show the northern Michigan county is still red, just not as dark a shade as it was in 2016.
The county is reporting Republican President Donald Trump beat Democrat Joe Biden by about 2,500 votes, with Trump receiving 56% of the just over 17,000 votes cast for president and Biden receiving 42%.
Political observers had expressed shock early Wednesday when the county transferred numbers to the state showing Biden beating Trump by about 3,000 votes. Antrim is a Republican stronghold where local GOP officials have mostly run unopposed in recent elections…” See the rest here: https://archive.vn/ciM1Z
