1. Given how sloppy these caucuses appear to be, I don't blame them.

15. Who the hell wouldn't want quality control in reporting the results?

 

Would you prefer they rush out results that aren't actually verified?

I mean...

2. CNN was saying it's something like they are checking to make sure the number of ballots cast

 

are the same as the number of votes being reported.

Edit: By ballots, I mean preference cards.

If Bernie or Liz win the rules might change.

Obvious listening to media they donít want a progressive.

5. As one who has repeatedly participated in caucuses (CO, 2008/2016) this is not unusual

 

These are everyday people trying to check/double check tallies. Small precincts are one thing, but the larger areas and the larger caucuses get really complicated and that would be even more so with Iowa's more complicated system


It is not like a primary election.

I'm just going to say that those who are trying to imply something nefarious going on should just STOP IT!

19. Thank you

 

I have seen this before. Because this is generally a volunteer-led effort, the skill level for making sure things are followed correctly can vary dramatically. This can (and does) result in inconsistencies being applied, even within a given precinct.

I really saw this back in 2008 when Obama was running. His campaign group was very enthusiastic but short on experience in my precinct. We were a lot of "newbies" to the process at the time. The party people and the older HRC voters were very patient and thorough. We actually came out better because of the rules being explained and a better precinct for it. And, yes I was one of those who went with Obama at the time. A lot of respect and love for my neighbors.

22. Caucuses are sloppy by their nature

 

Obama plated to that in 2008:and iirc so did Bernie in 2016. Klochubar and Buttigieg put on their game faces and played it well last night.
