Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon, seen on Nov. 6, 2019, said on Wednesday that the state's absentee ballot system "has worked very well, successfully and securely, for decades." He noted that Minnesotans have voted absentee since World War II.

Minnesota's top election official issued a strong defense of the state's safeguards for absentee voting Wednesday, one day after President Donald Trump questioned the integrity of mail-in ballots during the first presidential debate.

"The system is safe, secure and time-tested," Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon said. "This has been a system that has worked very well, successfully and securely, for decades." Simon noted that Minnesotans have voted absentee since World War II.

Trump's remarks came during a contentious 90-minute debate in which the president cast doubt on the upcoming presidential election, asserting despite an absence of documented cases that mail-in ballots will be "manipulated."
