The Iowa Caucuses will be held on February 1, 2016. The caucuses are an
event where voters from all of 1,774 Iowa voting precincts meet to elect
delegates to the county conventions. From the county convention, of which
there are exactly 99, delegates are chosen for the state party convention.
Eventually, the state party convention elects delegates to attend the
national party convention, where a Presidential nominee is selected. The
process is similar for both Democrat and Republican candidates. The winner
of the Iowa caucus receives the most delegates elected to the county
convention, which then elects delegates for that candidate to the state
convention, and eventually, to the national convention.

The *Iowa Caucus*^[1] is an electoral event in which residents of the U.S.
state of Iowa meet in precinct caucuses in all of Iowa's 1,681 precincts
and elect delegates to the corresponding conventions in each of the state's
99 counties. These county conventions then select delegates for both Iowa's
Congressional District Convention and the State Convention, which
eventually choose the delegates for the presidential nominating
conventions. About 1% of the nation's delegates are chosen by the Iowa
State Convention. The Iowa Caucus is noteworthy for the amount of media
attention it receives during U.S. presidential election years. Since
1972,^[2] the Iowa caucuses have been the first major electoral event of
the nominating process for President of the United States. Since 1972, the
Iowa caucuses have had a 43% success rate at predicting which Democratic
candidate for president and a 50% success rate at predicting which
Republican candidate for president will go on to win the nomination of
their political party at that party's national convention, though they may
more reliably indicate which ones are likely to drop out owing to lack of
support.^[3]^[4]^[5]

In 2016, the Iowa Democratic and Republican Party precinct caucuses took
place on Monday, February 1^[6] with one hour of voting beginning at 7:00pm
Central Standard Time. For the first time, results were electronically sent
to both Democratic and Republican headquarters.^[7]
