Feb 5, 2020 at 02:47 AM

The Quick Facts

  • The Iowa caucus was held on Monday, February 3rd. This was the first nominating contest of the 2020 election cycle.
  • In a caucus, participants indicate their preferred candidate by standing in a designated area of a caucus site.
  • This year, results from the caucus were significantly delayed due to problems related to a new smartphone app that was created to collect and report the results. The Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price has publicly apologized for this mishap.
  • Late Tuesday afternoon, initial results were released. As of Wednesday morning (with 71% of precincts reporting), Pete Buttigieg held a narrow lead in delegates, while Bernie Sanders held a lead in the first and final alignment votes.
