Were automated test ballots used to commit election fraud?


Gateway PunditThe Automated Test Deck Generator creates comprehensive test decks for efficient and easy logic & accuracy testing. Using the election project database, a deck of vote-marked ballots is randomly generated to provide the highest assurance of system accuracy. When scanned, these automated test deck ballots create known outcomes that can be compared with the tabulated results, providing verification of both the quality of the printed ballots as well as the complete accuracy of each tabulator.”

Are these the “pristine ballots” with the identical ballot markings as Fulton County Poll Manager Susan Voyles testified to in her hearing? Where else have we seen stacks of ballots, some pristine, with predictable 95%+ Biden results?

This is one of those technologies that can have legitimate uses, and can also be abused for improper purposes. One would hope that test ballots would be automatically marked in some way to avoid them being counted in a real election (although that has its own problems, too). Fundamentally it's a choice between testing with valid normal ballots versus testing with special test ballots that might have special code to handle. The right answer is probably to keep stringent protections on the test ballot generator combined with logs of which ballots were generated as tests so they can be removed from any actual results. It doesn't sound like those controls are in place.
