Iowa Caucus 101: How It Works

Believe it or not, the Republicans and the Democrats do it differently; the electors have to stand up and declare who they're for and why, and--well, it's basically a community meeting with speeches by citizens, politicing, and confusion.

In New Hampshire, the primary is a state-run function. In Iowa, the caucus system is run by the two major political parties. Citizens who want to get involved have to do more than show up and vote--these gatherings can take hours.

We hope they're serving some hot apple cider. Maybe a little hot apple pie, too.
