A Cochise County elections official said unexpectedly high voter turnout in Huachuca City caused the local vote center to run out of ballots.

Katie Howard, the county's elections director, said voting had to be suspended at the center for about an hour Tuesday until more ballots could be delivered. She called the voting turnout there "unprecedented."

County officials delivered 200 more ballots to the center Tuesday afternoon.

Howard said county rules allow voters to cast their ballots at any vote center, so voters in Huachuca City could head to another center if they didn't want to wait.
