Speaking at a press conference Friday, Cox called on all 47 counties that used the same software to audit their votes as the error may have been replicated in all counties.
Michigan GOP Chair: Dozens of Michigan counties used the same software that caused 6,000 votes in one county to switch from Trump to Biden.

“In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republican causing a 6,000 vote swing against our candidates,” Cox said.
“The county clerk came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes. Since then, we’ve now discovered that 47 counties used this same software in the same capacity.”
“These counties that used this software need to closely examine their result for similar discrepancies,” Cox stated.
GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also pointed out they’d discovered 2,000 ballots Thursday night that went Biden, when they were marked for Trump due to a clerical error in Rochester Hills.
We have documented irregularities in Michigan.
In Wayne County, poll watchers were kept in the dark with blocked windows & padlocked doors.

McDaniel went on to point out irregularities reported at other sites, including election workers adding backdated postdates to votes so they could be figured into the count, and urged state officials for transparency and to audit the vote.
“This is our democracy,” McDaniel stated at the press conference.
“To see people not be able to observe in Democrat run cities across the nation is not OK. We need to pursue these irregularities and we need people to be patient and give us the time to investigate. These are serious allegations of changing the date on ballots and refusing to let people observe in a meaningful way an election of this magnitude.”
