Today, the Iowa Democratic Party announced it has received requests from two presidential campaigns for an official recount of precinct caucuses. The requests are limited to the scope of both of the campaigns’ precinct recanvass requests. The Sanders campaign filed an official request for a recount of 10 precincts, and the Buttigieg campaign filed a request for a recount of 54 precincts – a total of 63 unique precincts.
In accordance with the IDP Delegate Selection Plan, the Recount/Recanvass Committee — in consultation with the DNC Voter Protection Team and IDP legal advisors — will review the requests to determine whether each meets the required standard of evidence suggesting that caucus errors would change the allocation of one or more National Delegates. The RRC will transmit its assessment of the requests to each respective campaign within 48 hours.
