The Associated Press reported today that a state judge has ordered a New Mexico county to issue provisional ballots after lawyers for Gov. Susana Martinez's campaign complained voters were being turned away due to software problems.

Judge George Eichwald told Sandoval County election officials Tuesday they must give voters provisional ballots if problems continued.

Voters in at least two precincts reported that election officials turned them away after ballots weren't printing properly. About a dozen voters were affected and ended up voting later.
