Multiple posts shared repeatedly on Facebook claim that electronic voting machines will be introduced in Australia's next federal election. The claims allege that machines provided by tech firm Dominion Voting Systems -- which were used in the 2020 US presidential election -- will replace manual voting in Australia's polls. However, the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) told AFP that it had no relationship with Dominion and that voting and vote-counting will remain manual processes.
