LAS C RUCES, N.M. (AP) — A Las Cruces attorney who says she was handed an incompletely printed ballot at an early voting site says she’s worried the problem may be more widespread than election officials [auth] contend.
Deborah Thuman tells the Las Cruces Sun-News (http://bit.ly/WSY3W7 ) she was handed a ballot that printed on only one side at a Dona Ana County early voting site on Oct. 20. She says a number of judicial races that should have been printed on the ballot’s back side were missing.
She was given a new ballot but says she’s unsure if other voters would catch such problems.
Deputy County Clerk Mario Jimenez says an on-site printer not being allowed to finish its job likely caused the problem. He says safeguards should catch such problems when completed ballots are submitted.
