Statement from Secretary Benson on alleged illegal attempt to sell voter assist terminal

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson today made the following statement regarding reports of an alleged illegal attempt to sell a voter assist terminal:
"We are actively working with law enforcement to investigate allegations of an illegal attempt to sell a voter assist terminal acquired in Michigan. Voter assist terminals are not used to tabulate ballots, but are typically used by voters with disabilities who need assistance marking their ballot privately at polling places. 
"While our elections remain secure and safe, we take seriously all violations of election law and will be working with relevant authorities to ensure there are consequences for those who break the law."
