Heavy turnout, some confusion at Santa Fe polling site for early balloting
Turnout was heavy at polling sites in Santa Fe and Albuquerque as early voting started Saturday.
In fact, waiting times were so long at a south-side Santa Fe location that some people who wanted to cast their ballots ahead of the Nov. 4 election gave up and left.
And people who tried to vote downtown at the Santa Fe County administration building on Grant Avenue found the front doors locked Saturday and a sign posted that blamed the Secretary of State's Office for misinformation mailed to voters about that site.
