ST. PAUL — Minnesota officials say they’re trying to fix an issue with the online system for requesting absentee ballots after receiving dozens of complaints.

Secretary of state spokesman Nathan Bowie said the office has received about 60 calls in the past week related to rejected online applications. He says the state doesn’t know how many people may be affected. Some might be unaware that their applications weren’t accepted.
