CADILLAC, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – The Michigan Secretary of State’s office said it is working with law enforcement to investigate allegations of an illegal attempt to sell a voter assist terminal from Wexford County on eBay.
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said the terminals do not tabulate ballots. She told MIRS News that the voter assist terminals are “for voters who need help marking their ballot privately at polling places.”
A Colfax Township clerk told The Cadillac News that the missing machine was from her township, and that it had gone missing before the August 2 primary.
The Michigan State Police Cadillac Post is investigating.
This is not the first time Benson’s office has been in the news this week. A judge refused to dismiss her lawsuit to clean up the voter rolls in Michigan. More than 25,000 deceased residents are still on that list.
