Dominion Voting Systems dominates voting machines. It holds a third of the voting-machine market. Its software was used in all swing states this year, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Nevada.

The software company also has ties to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Her former chief of staff is one of the lobbyists on the company’s first-ever lobbying firm—Brownstein Farber Hyatt & Schreck, according to Bloomberg Government.

In Michigan, the software was partially to blame for the 6,000 votes being awarded to the wrong candidate in Michigan's Antrim County. A skewed result initially saw Biden winning the traditionally red county, but when corrected, the results showed that President Donald Trump had won.

The Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy initially attributed the problem to a combination of a software glitch and human error. But just today, county officials backpedaled on the statement, saying the Dominion software had no part in the mistake, now blaming the problem solely on human error.

Michigan wasn't the only state where problems were connected to Dominion. In two Georgia counties, the night before the election, two voting machines crashed. Voters in Morgan and Spalding counties couldn't cast ballots for hours after the crash, delaying vote counts that eventually went in favor of Trump.

Elections supervisor for Spalding County said the company “uploaded something on November 2nd or the night before election day, which is not something that's normally ever done, and it caused a glitch.”

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly attributed a statement by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo to former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell. That statement cited a report that incorrectly suggested that the husband of a U.S. senator is the shareholder of a voting company.
