(CNN)At least 74,000 absentee ballot requests submitted by voters in three Iowa counties will remain invalid because of technical problems with the paperwork, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.

The court upheld earlier rulings that the forms were invalid because the counties pre-emptively filled out some of the voters' information, like their name and date of birth.

They already sent out a new round of absentee ballot request forms to all voters, after lower courts sided with the Republican Party and Trump campaign and invalidated the original forms.

Last week, Linn County auditor Joel Miller told CNN that he was still trying to reach about 14,000 voters who sent in the original forms but still haven't returned the corrected version of the forms.

Johnson County auditor Travis Weipert said there were about 2,000 voters they were still trying to track down.
