Five Michigan counties are allegedly moving ahead with guidance from the state that is likely to erase all activities on the voting machines in the county. A Cease and Desist order was mailed to the counties but these few counties may move forward anyways.
At least five counties in Michigan are reportedly moving ahead with the destruction of data from the 2020 Election on the voting equipment they used in the election. The problem with this is that the procedure that the vendor is performing reportedly removes all data from the machines but federal law states that information related to the 2020 Election is to be maintained in safekeeping for 22 months after the election. Also, all the counties in the state have been provided a ‘cease and desist’ order preventing them from removing the data from the machines.
According to Kagbro88 on Twitter, at least five counties have said they are moving ahead with the request from the state to remove the batteries in the machines which would also remove all memory from the machines.
Midland and Manistee Counties are two of the counties moving forward with the state’s request.
Lake County says they are waiting for their attorney’s opinion while Dickinson is moving ahead with the ‘maintenance’.
Iron County is planning on going ahead with the state’s request as well.
