The election integrity group True the Vote told Arizona lawmakers that their investigation uncovered cell phone tracking data showing that alleged ballot “mules” visited drop boxes in two of the state’s largest counties no less than 5,700 times leading up to the 2020 election.
“When we started the project, we didn’t know [what we would find],” said Catherine Engelbrecht, who serves as President of True The Vote, according to The Epoch Times. “We began to think through what is a realistic expectation or threshold for when going to a dropbox is too many times. We wanted to focus on a clear, narrow data set [to demonstrate] “extreme outlier behavior.”
A number of Arizona GOP lawmakers have vowed to move forward with legislation — HB-2289 — that would ban the use of unsupervised ballot drop boxes in the state.
