An Arizona election worker says the sheriff’s office in her county is conducting an investigation into the 2020 election that targets non-profit groups operating nationwide that are believed to be at the center of voting fraud.
Robyn Stallworth Pouquette, who provides oversight of voter registration and early voting in Yuma County, told the Epoch Times the sheriff’s office has opened numerous investigations that pertain to non-profits she described as "political advocacy groups."
Earlier this month, a former mayor in Yuma County was charged in an alleged ballot-trafficking scheme that was uncovered in an investigation highlighted in "2000 Mules." The documentary film features a probe by True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and data analyst and election intelligence expert Gregg Phillips. They used cellphone location data and surveillance video to uncover what they describe as a highly coordinated operation in key battleground states carried out by left-wing groups that collected mail-in ballots and paid "mules" to stuff them in unattended drop boxes, typically in the middle of the night.
Engelbrecht told the Epoch Times that she and her colleagues are "extremely encouraged that the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office and Recorder’s Office are now working together to investigate individuals involved in the subversion of elections."

"We’ve spent concentrated time in Yuma County and have provided significant information to both state and federal authorities," she said. "What has been happening in Yuma County is happening across the country. The targeting of vulnerable communities and voter abuse must be stopped."
The non-profit at the center of the Yuma County ballot-trafficking investigation of the former mayor is Comité De Bien Estar, which says its mission is "to empower moderate to low-income families in the community, by helping them overcome the many barriers they face, including very low wages, little access to conventional financing and limited political representation." Police have searched the home of an employee of the non-profit.

Pouquette told the Epoch Times that the non-profits who solicit voter registrations have a legitimate role in assisting voters.
But she emphasized that they also have become a point of "vulnerability of the system, in the sense that fraudulent voter registrations can disrupt the legitimate active registration of an eligible voter."
"It is a very disruptive process for the office when we should be focusing on audits and making sure that we’re auditing our records prior to the distribution of ballots," she said.
Pouquette said fraudulent election forms continue to be submitted during the current primary election. The sheriff’s office has 16 open investigations that included allegations of impersonation fraud, false registrations, duplicate voting, and fraudulent use of absentee ballots.
