Despite Election Security Fears, Iowa Caucuses Will Use New Smartphone App

by NPR  |  Published on January 15, 2020

Iowa’s Democratic Party plans to use a new Internet-connected smartphone app to help calculate and transmit results during the state’s caucuses next month, Iowa Public Radio and NPR have confirmed.

Party leaders say they decided to opt for that strategy fully aware of three years’ worth of warnings about Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election, in which cyberattacks played a central role.

Iowa’s complicated caucus process is set to take place Feb. 3 in gymnasiums, churches, recreation centers and other meeting places across the state.

As opposed to a primary in which voters cast ballots in the same way they would for a general election, Iowa’s caucuses are social affairs; caucusgoers gather in person and pledge their support for a candidate by physically “standing in their corner” in designated parts of a room.
