In one Michigan county, it was allegedly discovered that the counting software was miscounted some Trump votes as Biden counts.

They recounted the votes by hand and found that about 6,000 votes were miscounted by the software for that county.

47 other counties in Michigan use the same counting software, meaning there were potentially 200,000 miscounted votes in Michigan, which would flip the state.

If the software is used in other states, then those ballots will also need to be recounted, and could likely flip those states which are only Biden by a few tens of thousands of votes.

However, there are, understandably, many doubts about these claims, and it is highly likely that any ballots counted with this software will be recounted by hand, which will reveal if in fact there had been a software issue.

There have also been incidents of counting areas being blocked from the view of the count auditing witnesses in some areas, for reasons unknown.

It's looking like the 2000 election all over again (where Gore was called the winner for an entire month before the recount discovered Bush had won Florida), except on a much larger scale with many more states.

So even if Biden is the real winner of the election, Trump is going to push hard for hand recounts, and the election results won't be official until those are finished.

This is probably a dumb question, but from what I understand, what really matters is the voting of electors on Dec. 14.  Do electors have to vote based on vote counts?  How does it work if votes are not satisfactorily counted by then?

Yes.

>Do electors have to vote based on vote counts?
Depends on the state.  In Chiafalo v. Washington (2020), the Supreme Court held that "A State may enforce an elector's pledge to support his party's nominee—and the state voters' choice—for President".

>How does it work if votes are not satisfactorily counted by then?
Again, varies by state.

Trump is going to try and delay the inevitable, no doubt. But Biden's lead is looking to be so big I'm not sure it will matter. It's being reported that those around Trump are trying to make him aware of this.

That said >>7539 can wait until January 20th to eat his MAGA hat.
