NH audit tapes show memory card cleared


UncoverDCTodd, a financial auditor and founder of NH Voter Integrity Group, reported that activity on a computer with firmware software on it would be listed on an internal audit report. Indeed, this is the case with Windham’s machines, which are serviced and maintained by LHS Associates. Interestingly, LHS President Jeff Silvestro was present multiple days at the audit. Upon looking closer at the pictures of the machine’s audit report from May 12, Todd noticed the following specific line items among others:

Line 30 – Session Start, date 5/12/21
Line 31 – Machine put in “Supervise Mode”
Line 33 – Memory Card Reset
Line 34 – Session Start, date 5/12/21
Line 35 – Prep for Election
Line 36 – Clear Counters
Line 37 – Session Start, date 11/3/20
Line 43 – Session Start, date 11/5/20

According to Todd and reported by UncoverDC, Hursti previously indicated that he would need to reset the entire memory card because it was not possible to clear the counters. Upon seeing the machine’s audit report, Todd realized that was not true, and the memory card does not need to be deleted, as Hursti insisted.

This shows that during the currently ongoing audit, the memory card in the vote counting machine being audited was cleared before running the election audit.

This would likely have the effect of wiping out any modifications performed on that card intended to effect the election. In other words, you could rerun the election and it would function normally because any modifications intended to influence the election would be wiped out.

Does it prove there was anything nefarious? No. But is it intended to prevent future auditors from discovering if there was anything nefarious? I can't think of other serious explanations, but I'm not an expert on how these machines work or exactly what each machine command on the tape means.

But it sure looks like the "auditors" in New Hampshire got caught deleting election records and potentially evidence of a crime.

UPDATE: It's possible the card being cleared was not an actual card used in the election. It could be a copy, or even an entirely new card with fresh programming. So that's one possible explanation.

UPDATE: There's also some date manipulation that seems significant.

UPDATE: Here's the explanation from the auditors.
