Pueblo County’s digital voting management system has been working only periodically today, which could result in delays for reporting of voter there, according to the Pueblo Chieftain.

The county tends to go Democratic. In 2012, Democrat Barack Obama beat Republican Mitt Romney there by about 10,000 votes. The county cast roughly 73,000 votes for president that year, while Colorado as a whole cast more than 2 million votes.

Pueblo has one of the state’s most interesting ballot items this year: The county is considering banning marijuana businesses, which would be a major change for the state’s pot industry.
