Dominion Voting Systems is a Canadian company founded in 2003 and whose US headquarters are located in Denver, in the central state of Colorado.
Specializing in voting technology, it provides local authorities with the machines and associated software that many Americans use to vote.

According to a study by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, its technology was related to more than 71 million American voters in the elections 2016 in 1,635 locations.
This makes it the second largest provider in the country, behind Election Systems & Software.
Trump tweeted last Thursday information from the conservative One America News Network (Oann) that claimed that Dominion software had “erased 2.7 million votes from Trump across the country,” and that hundreds of thousands of votes destined for him had been reassigned to his rival, Joe Biden, in states that use Dominion’s technology.
Since then, his supporters rely on this “information” to attest to the electoral fraud on a large scale that they denounce without any concrete proof.
Starting with the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who said Sunday on another conservative channel, Fox News, that Dominion was “a radical left-wing company.”
“A foreign company, which has very close ties with Venezuela, and therefore with China, and which uses software from a Venezuelan company that has been used to steal elections in other countriesGiuliani said, among other accusations with conspiratorial overtones.
Oann has not posted his story on Dominion, which Trump mentioned on Twitter Thursday, online.
The station chief indicated in an email to CNN that he would appear in a large-format investigation that would be broadcast on November 21 and 22, without specifying the evidence on which it was based.
Dominion Voting Systems in a press release rejected any flaws in its software.
He referred to “human errors” in the data processing of “certain counties”, particularly Michigan (north), but ensures that these isolated incidents were resolved quickly.

Several local and national electoral authorities, including the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency (Cisa), which is part of the Department of National Security, ruled out on Thursday the possibility of manipulation of votes through machines.
“There is no evidence of any electoral system that has erased, lost or changed votes, or that has been hacked in any way,” they said in a joint statement.
