ANCHORAGE- Some 16,000 applicants had difficulty with the new electronic signature feature when filing their Permanent Fund Dividend application electronically.

There were no problems encountered filing the application itself and being issued a confirmation number. Some people's computers froze.
When others exited the window, they didn't continue to the "Pick. Click. Give." page to donate a portion of their return to one of about 500 nonprofits.
Officials say most glitches have been fixed, and people log back on and go to the donation page.
