Indiana State Police say the investigation into alleged fraudulent voter registration applications has expanded to additional counties.

As part of the expanded investigation, police served a search warrant for the business offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project in Indianapolis on October 4.

Police expect the investigation to last several more weeks or months.

Because of the sensitive nature of the investigation, police want residents to know all voter registrations suspected of being fraudulent were copied. The originals are with the appropriate voter registration office.
