Iowa caucus

The Iowa caucuses are the first official event of the 2020 race for the Democratic nomination. Traditionally, results from the Iowa caucuses start being released shortly after the meetings wrap up around 9pm Central Time. But people who tuned in to see the results this evening were disappointed, as technical glitches delayed the release of results by hours. As I write this around midnight Central Time, there are still no numbers available.

It’s a rough go for technology and voting. Trust is at or below zero these days from the general public. It’s going to be a long, slow, uphill battle to earn back trust.
