Complaints poured in to the New Mexico Secretary of State's office about mistakes on new voter identification cards required under a 2005 law, a report said.
Some voter ID cards also were sent to dead people, said New Mexico Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron.
"I've never had this many calls in all this time," Vigil-Giron told the Albuquerque (N.M.) Journal.
Vigil-Giron, who has been in office 12 years, expects more calls as residents statewide get the cards -- a $1 million expense required under a 2005 law.
As for blame, Vigil-Giron cited faulty data from Bernalillo County.
However, Bernalillo County Clerk Mary Herrera said her workers "went through every single card" to "make sure all of the information is correct."
While the new IDs were to be in voters' hands by the June 6 primary, other forms of ID will allow them to vote.
