Georgia election officers have subpoenaed True the Vote over allegations

The subpoenas force True the Vote to release documents, records and names allegedly connected to the ballot collection. The subpoenas also require testimony from True the Vote founder Catherine Englebrecht and her colleague Gregg Phillips.

The True the Vote complaint reiterated several claims the GBI reviewed earlier in the fall before declining to open an investigation. The organization said it tracked GPS signals from cellphones to reveal illegal ballot collection at ballot boxes.

GBI director Vic Reynolds said in September that “an investigation is not warranted” because there was no other evidence linking cell phone signals to ballot collection.

The subpoenas will provide information to investigators in the Secretary of State’s office. When they complete the investigation, they will submit the findings to the State Election Committee, which has the power to impose fines or refer cases to the prosecutor’s office.
