What Went Wrong: Tech Troubles Behind Delay in Iowa Results
The Delays Were Not the Result of a Hack or Intrusion
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – A new mobile app is being blamed for the delay in reporting the results of Iowa’s 1,700 caucuses.
Glitches with the mobile app caused confusion and left the caucus results unknown early Tuesday.
Some caucus organizers were forced to call in results for the state party to record manually, introducing delays and the possibility for human error.
Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price says the delays were not the result of a hack or intrusion.
The party said it expects to release data later Tuesday after manually verifying its data against paper backups.
