   The results of the 2020 Iowa caucus were delayed considerably for the Democratic party. The delay is being largely blamed on reporting and coding problems with the new smartphone app that is being used to collect results.

   In the face of harsh criticism for the issue-riddled caucus, Iowa Democratic Party Communications Director Mandy McClure shared the following update late Monday night: “We found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results. In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report. This is simply a reporting issue, the app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”

   The smartphone app they were using turned out to have some major coding problems.

   Additionally, it was soon found out that they app they were using lacked some basic safeguards.

   The Iowa caucuses are noteworthy as the first major contest of the United States presidential primary season. Although caucus-goers have been unrepresentative of the nation's overall ethnic demographic, caucuses are still seen by some as a strong indicator of how a presidential candidate will do in later contests.

   In the Iowa caucus there isn't a secret ballot - it's a very different type of voting. The following video on YouTube from Edwards's campaign office is an entertaining way to educate yourself on how a caucus vote is actually cast.

Why is it called Iowa Caucus?

   
   User Avatar 
   The Iowa Caucus is so called because it does not function like a normal primary. In Iowa they have mini town meetings amongst political party members that are called Caucuses. At these meetings they decide which candidate they will be backing as their presidential nominee. For more information about caucuses see: http://www.answers.com/topic/caucus = =

The caucus assures absolute secrecy?

   
   User Avatar 
   The term 'caucus' can be used as both a noun and a verb, and absolute secrecy is a part of neither. As a noun, a caucus is a group of officials with similar interests and goal, such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the Iowa Republican Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, or similar. As a verb, the term "to caucus" is when these groups meet and vote, with voting procedures ranging from secret ballot, to a show-of-hands, to a voice-vote.
