Michigan Oversight Committee Issues Subpoenas For Election Equipment & Communications

Michigan Legislature’s House and Senate oversight committees on Tuesday voted to issue subpoenas demanding the surrender of election computer hardware, emails, and communications, according to a report by Just the News.

The subpoenas direct the city of Detroit and the suburb of Livonia to turn over hard drives, email communications, absentee voter counting board computers and laptops, communication between poll workers, the list of workers hired to be adjudicators, scanners and voting machines.

Michigan House Oversight Committee Chairman Matt Hall said in a statement Tuesday: “Surveillance footage, hard drives and other storage materials such as USB drives can deliver us additional information that will help us see how these elections functioned and where they can operate more efficiently.

I’ve maintained that it is vitally important as we go forward in Michigan to ensure our election procedures are transparent, efficient and trustworthy when people go to the polls,” Hall said. “This stance isn’t a partisan one. It’s something we all should strive for.

The resolution instructs subpoenas to be issued to the Livonia city clerk Susan Nash and Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey, for all “information and communications” relating to the November 3rd 2020 election.

The House and Senate Oversight Committees have heard testimony and claims about this election. We’ve also heard from officials who have responded to those claims. These additional measures will allow us to look at the evidence and confirm the truth,” Hall said in a Tuesday statement.

That evidence lies within records, documents and communications from local officials who oversaw election processes in communities where irregularities have been reported.
