Following the 2020 presidential election, rumors began circulating on social media that two voting technology systems – Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic – ceased operations and that employees are hiding from law enforcement.
Users across social media continued to spread this claim.
Misbar’s investigation shows that the claim is false. The 2020 election has caused many to make claims about voter fraud, with claims made repeatedly by President Trump. Dominion Voting Systems addressed the rumor on their website, stating: “Dominion is not shuttering its offices. Employees have been encouraged to work remotely and protect their social media profiles due to persistent harassment and threats against personal safety.”
Additionally, the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council (GCC) and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Executive Committees released a joint statement, which read: “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised." The government & private sector councils that support this mission called the 2020 election "the most secure in American history.”
Smartmatic also addressed multiple claims about fraud and other voting irregularities directly on their website, where multiple claims have been debunked.
To summarize, offices for Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic have not shut down; however, according to the respective websites, some employees are working from home due to the pandemic. There is no evidence to support that executives are suspected of crimes or evading law enforcement.
