“Iowa Democrats Propose ‘Satellite Caucuses’ to Expand Contest”


The Iowa Democratic Party proposed instituting “satellite caucuses” to let voters participate even if they can’t get to an official caucus site, according to Democratic National Committee members who have been briefed on the plan.

The proposal, which would take effect for the state’s caucuses in February, was unveiled Thursday during the Iowa Democratic Party’s State Central Committee meeting. It will be presented Friday during a DNC Rules and By-Laws meeting. It comes after the DNC vetoed the state party’s plan to let some people participate by telephone, citing cybersecurity concerns.
