Voting Problems

New Mexico – County elections officials say problems with New Mexico's voter registration computer system have disrupted early voting in some locations.

Elections officials in Dona Ana, San Juan and Santa Fe counties say early voting was delayed at some locations Tuesday evening because poll workers weren't able to access the statewide voter registration system.

The county officials blamed the secretary of state's office for the expiration of a security certificate, which is needed for a secure online connection with the voter registration system. The early voting glitch has been resolved, but county officials said Wednesday that computer problems continue to delay the processing of other election reports.

The secretary of state's office said it's working to ease the computer system delays.
