Denver (AP) No catastrophic problems in Colorado's new voter database system were found during a mock election last month, but c report on the test says the system did have greater connectivity and performance problems than expected.

System project director Trevor Timmons says the state is working on solving glitches before the August primaries.

The system is designed to connect Colorado's 64 counties to one voter database used to check in voters at the polls.

In a mock election, county clerks reported delays logging into the system or checking voters. Some reported problems printing reports or linking with their vote-counting systems.

Timmons says many problems could be addressed with training. A tech company is looking into connection problems.
