New Election Fraud Lawsuit Alleges Signature Verification Problems with Relia-Vote Computers Funded by Zuckerbucks
A new election fraud lawsuit filed in Michigan by Secretary of State candidate Kristina Karamo and members of election integrity activist groups references Relia-Vote, a computerized ballot production and analysis program that also conducts signature verification.
The lawsuit alleges problems with election procedures that are taking place across the state, in particular the TCF Center in Detroit, which was the major fraud center during the 2020 presidential election. The lawsuit was filed against Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey, the woman who directly oversaw the steal in 2020. The claimants are calling for mandatory ID to be presented for all Detroit residents to be able to vote.
The election officials are hiding behind the software within Relia-Vote in order to claim that the process is on the level. The individuals filing the lawsuit claim that the software can be easily manipulated by election officials, and there is no uniform standard to how the software is used to verify signatures.
“State was required to use the Michigan Administrative Procedures Act to promulgate rules for signature verification and that the SOS guidance informing clerks that the signatures were presumed valid and that the ‘any redeeming characteristic standard’ was unlawful,” the lawsuit reads.
“No signature comparison process has been made into a rule. The lack of a signature standard means that the process involving a mailed-in ballot investigation or online registration is unlawful; and as it is the only alternative that does not require an absentee voter to show identification at the precinct in order to obtain the ballot this entire scheme must be declared invalid,” the lawsuit continues.
The lawsuit also states that Relia-Vote was brought into Michigan during the 2020 presidential election through a $750,000 grant given to Detroit by the Center for Tech and Civil Living (CTCL), popularly referred to as “Zuckerbucks.” The lawsuit claims Relia-Vote is used to interface with the Qualified Voter File with no transparency to the public and no oversight from the state board of canvassers.
“The interface with Relia-Vote is illegal in that it fails to comply with the certification requirements of the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002 which requires that the voting system as configured be certified as meeting or exceeding the current Voluntary Voting System Standards (VVSG 2.0) for election security and transparency as established by the US Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and certified by the accredited Voting System Testing Laboratory (VSTL),” the lawsuit states.
“There is no authority in the law to have the Relia-Vote system and its artificial intelligence replace the Detroit Board of Election Inspectors and to use a digital comparison of the signatures to augment the clerk,” the lawsuit adds.
The claimants, including Sandy Kiesel of Election Integrity Force, say there is nothing to prevent the Relia-Vote standard from being changed arbitrarily by biased election officials with political agendas. This throws the notion of accurate signature verification out the door, perhaps by design.
“It’s not uniform to processes used in other parts of the state. It has perimeters for the sensitivity for how it evaluates signatures and we have no idea what those parameters are. It is not consistent across the state, which violates HAVA requirements. It can be changed for any reason and easily misused to conduct voter suppression. This is all being done without any access given to poll challengers. It is not being certified by an accredited lab,” Kiesel told Big League Politics.
Relia-Vote is a service provided by the DMT Solutions Global Corporation, also referred to as BlueCrest. According to IncFact, they have annual revenues of over $500 million. This firm is on the cutting edge of automating election infrastructure, opening the door for clerks and corrupt officials to feign ignorance and shirk blame for any improprieties and irregularities that occur during an election.
A press release from BlueCrest talks about how Relia-Vote is expanding into ballot production as a way to increase mail-in voting and attempt to make in-person voting obsolete.
“Vote-by-Mail is not going away, and our new Relia-Vote Ballot Manager Software solution demonstrates our continued commitment to product leadership by delivering even greater automation and security for election officials” said Rick Becerra, Vice President, Sortation Solutions & Strategy. “BlueCrest engineers and product line management are always working on understanding market needs to develop groundbreaking, scalable and innovative solutions that election officials, service providers, and voters can rely on.”
Big League Politics will continue to report on the progress of this crucial election integrity lawsuit as it is proceeds through the courts.
