37 is a fairly large number don’t you think?
Even if these are ‘minor’ discrepancies, they can always be evidence of something far larger going on—trace amounts of forensic data that indicates deeper, more hidden fraud.
The fact that small errors are so commonplace really just leaves room for things to hide in plain sight.
Things like fractional vote tabulation……
I am not saying that is what happened here, but what I am saying is, it gives a wonderful opportunity to conceal fraud, and fraud always occurs whenever the opportunities present themselves.
Take a look:
37 Texas counties show voting discrepancies, but not enough to alter 2020 election outcome https://t.co/faeWQyNOoD

The Associated Press had more on the story:
A group of Texas Republicans wants to audit the 2020 election results in just the large, mostly Democratic counties across the state. If they get their way, they’ll miss many of the real — but minor — errors in the state’s vote count.
That’s according to a team of researchers that conducted a statewide analysis of the results across both Democratic and Republican counties. The group found a series of errors that would not come close to changing Republican Donald Trump’s victory in the state or any other statewide race. But the errors stretch across both Republican and Democratic counties.
The research adds to a pile of evidence that contradicts the belief, widespread among Republicans, that elections in Democratic areas are rife with errors, irregularities and mismanagement. While errors in the tally do occur, research shows they tend to be random and small scale and do not benefit one party or the other.
We need a full forensic audit of our election here in Texas.
Voters deserve to have confidence in our elections, yet right now it is at an all-time low.
The right to vote and elections that follow the law are at the foundation of our republic.

Minor mistakes like the Texas ones are relatively common, say election experts. In Texas, the errors are likely due to the state’s use of an older computer system that requires counties to enter their tallies by hand, increasing the risk of errors when the wrong digit is typed.
But they take on greater significance at a time when Trump supporters are calling for increased scrutiny of Democratic election offices, such as in Texas, where Attorney General Ken Paxton is among the Republicans supporting legislation that would audit the state’s largest counties—most of which were carried by Biden last year.
“If Texas is going to focus on the blue counties, that’s probably the wrong thing to do,” said Michael McDonald, the political scientist who led the team that found the Texas discrepancies. He also operates the U.S. Elections Project, which has tallies of all national elections since the nation’s founding. “They should look at all the counties because there’s something broken with this system.”
