Failed candidate makes baseless claims about stolen drives, Dominion voting machines while requesting ballot test | Rare Techy


Jackson, Miss. (WLBT) – The losing candidate to incumbent Democrat Congressman Benny Thompson plans to review Hinds County’s ballots next week, claiming without proof that some equipment was stolen during the election and alleging Dominion voting machines were involved.

Republican Brian Flowers filed paperwork Monday requesting a ballot box inspection and review of election-related records.

But that request — obtained exclusively by 3 On Your Side — also reveals that the county is asking for more flowers than it is legally required to provide.

Flowers wants all the flash drives’ serial numbers “stolen from election machines” in 2022, but by law, Flowers can only get information from the most recent election two weeks ago, not the first of the year.

County officials say no drives or equipment were stolen.

He needs a list of all the technicians who interacted with the election machinery before, during and after the election.

State law indicates that ballot box inspection is limited to the contents of the box, which does not include flash drive serial numbers or who serviced the election machines.

Flowers also indicated in the request that Dominion voting systems were used in the vote counting process, requesting official figures from “Dominion/ES&S uploads from each precinct.”

The remark echoed unsubstantiated claims that Dominion machines influenced the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The Secretary of State’s office confirmed to 3 On Your Side that Dominion voting machines are not used in any counties in Mississippi.

Other items in Flowers’ request seem more suited to a public records request than a ballot box exam, with the candidate asking for all voter registration rolls in Hinds County and serial numbers for all flash drives in the county’s 108 precincts.
