Dr. Eric Coomer, who is the officer responsible for the strategy and security of Dominion Voting Systems, said that it was possible to bypass election systems software and go directly into the data tables.
Dominion Voting Systems is the election software company responsible for switching approximately 6,000 votes from President Trump and Republican Senate candidate John James to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Democrat Senator Gary Peters in Antrim County, Michigan.
The switch was caused by a supposed “glitch” in the system in Antrim County. This software is also reportedly being used in 47 other counties in Michigan, and several other states.
In 2016, Dr. Coomer told Illinois’ State Board of Elections that it was possible to bypass election systems software:
The original 2016 article from news outlet The Post & Email provides more detail of the possibility of tampering with votes:
“Dr. Coomer’s statement brings to light a very serious issue all voters should understand. Voting systems must be re-certified each time they make changes to the hardware or software. Recertification is an expensive and time consuming process. What Dr. Coomer told the Board is that Dominion Voting does not go back for recertification of software when threats to their code are discovered. Rather, they rely on post-election audits and providing advice to election jurisdictions about security. I have reviewed all of the recertification documents produced by Dominion, and I do not recall any software adjustments for security purposes.
This is the reality of the security of your vote. Software systems that count and record the vote across Illinois and throughout the USA are not updated to address security problems, and even if they were, the software can be completely bypassed by going to the data tables that drive the systems.”
