The Results

The Iowa Democratic Party announced the "majority" of the results will be made public by 5 pm EST.


What Happened:

The Iowa Democratic Party has placed the blame of the fiasco on a "coding issue" with the vote-reporting app developed by veteran Clinton campaign aides, per the Des Moines Register.

  • The app was issued by Shadow, Inc, and co-founded by Gerard Niemira and Krista Davis, who worked for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

  • The disastrous reporting app damaged the prime media coverage for the candidate who might have won the nation's first presidential electoral event.

  • According to the NYT, the app was only completed 2 months ago and was "not properly tested at a statewide scale,".

  • Per CENET, The vote-tabulating app frightened cybersecurity experts for weeks, due to concerns of the app's vulnerabilities hacking.
