The Iowa Caucus Gets a Technology Boost!

So this is not a political website and this is not a political blog but this is something I find very funny. As many people know the Iowa Caucuses were yesterday. For those of you that don't know, this is the election event that really kicks off the presidential election season every four years.
This time around the Democrats have a gaggle of little known candidates vying for support from voters. The Iowa Democratic Caucus took place yesterday and for some reason, they decided to put a little spin on the way things were handled this year. They used an app to tally the votes. What could ever go wrong there, a bunch of mouth breathing farmers trying to navigate an app to cast their ballot and then more brain dead Iowans count the votes and report the results... flawless plan! Hey Iowa, we have a little saying here in the civilized world - If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
To no one's surprise, they screwed it up and now the Democratic Caucus organizers in Iowa are scrambling to count all of the votes so they can announce the results in a year where there is no clear front runner for the Democratic nomination. Oh yeah, and Nevada plans to use the same app in 2 weeks... Nice job guys, keep up the good work!
