Michigan State Police seized a voting machine as part of an investigation into possible unauthorized access to election equipment.

Law enforcement and officials at Democratic Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel's office had a warrant and took a voting machine from Irving Township into custody, officials told CNN and The Epoch Times.

"The Township intends to fully cooperate with law enforcement, and the Township attorneys have been in contact with the Michigan State Police regarding this matter. The Township has no further comment at this time," Irving Township supervisor Jamie Knight told The Epoch Times.

County clerk Pamela Palmer told CNN that she did not know about any machine issue until police notified her of the equipment's seizure.

The 2020 election investigation has expanded in Michigan.

"As we found out more information we’ve expanded our area to see if any other places were compromised," Michigan State Police Lieutenant Derrick Carroll said. "We have gone to other regions.”
