DES MOINES — Today, the Iowa Democratic Party announced the results of the limited-scope recanvass requests from the Buttigieg and Sanders campaigns. The list of recanvassed precincts and changes can be found here. The recanvass process resulted in no change to national delegate allocation.
The IDP recanvass administrators analyzed the official records of results from requested precincts, as signed by the precinct chair, secretary, and representatives of campaigns. Due to the nature of the requests, the Recanvass/Recount Committee made a recommendation to the SCC for the official recanvass process, which was passed, to allow for corrections in instances where the caucus math is correct, but the rules were misapplied in the awarding of delegates to viable groups.
The IDP reported corrections for 26 precincts where a misapplication of the rules affected delegate allocation, and 3 precincts where the reported final alignment did not match what was on the math worksheet. The remaining records of results that were requested for review were either accurately reported initially; corrected in the previous review; represent precincts electing a single-delegate from the caucus as a whole; or reflect math inconsistencies that are not covered under the SCC resolution.
The recanvass was conducted by appointed recanvass administrators, under the supervision and direction of the Recanvass/Recount Committee beginning on Sunday, February 16. Representatives from the Buttigieg, Sanders, and Warren campaigns were on site to oversee the precinct recanvass.
Any campaign that was granted a recanvass and wishes to request a recount must respond within 24 hours of the publication of results. That response must include the requested precincts for a recount and any credible evidence that indicates the recount could change the national delegate allocation. The scope of a recount is limited to the precincts that were requested for the recanvass.
