Iowa's Democratic Party will use a smartphone app to calculate the results from the states caucuses next month, according to NPR.
The move came despite warnings of potential cybersecurity breaches in light of Russia's election interference in 2016.
The caucuses are scheduled to take place Feb. 3 in public buildings and churches throughout the state.
The internet-connected app is supposed to help get the results out in a more timely fashion, according to Troy Price, the chairman of the state Democratic Party, allowing caucus leaders to compile the results from participants and submit them to the central party via the app.
Iowa Democrats will prioritize security, Price told NPR, but he declined to provide details on which companies designed the app or to detail security measures in place.
The state party worked with the cybersecurity team of the national party and with Harvard University's Defending Digital Democracy project, according to NPR.

I heard that the various Kims over the years, routinely get over 99% of the vote in North Korean elections. They have very short election nights as the election returns are announced. There’s no suspense at all.
Sounds to me like Crazy Bernie is about to have his lunch money stolen once again.
Communists within the crooked Democrat Party pose a much bigger security threat than Russians hiding under your bed in 2020.
