The Utah Republican Party is hosting what is could be the nation's largest online election ever. In addition to hosting a statewide caucus, the party set up an online voting system for any registered voter outside or inside the state.
Unfortunately, Utah's digital election night doesn't seem to be going as smoothly as Utah Republicans had hoped.
While Utah Republicans headed to their caucus in person on Tuesday evening, anyone who had registered online by March 17 can log on to utah.gop to vote between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. local time and cast their vote. But the Deseret News reports some voters got error messages when they tried to navigate beyond the first page.
As of Tuesday night, party officials said about 10,000 of the 40,000 Utahns who applied to vote online were rejected because their IDs couldn't be verified.

What could possibly go wrong.
People just to damned lazy to get out and vote.
If you are to lazy or busy to get out and vote, then you shouldn’t be voting and you deserve the government you get.
... Comprende? Eet's over, manq.
The PriestHood has spoken. Urin and Thummim's UP!

The Morg probably only handed out the access codes to their own members...
Did they use the same people that set up the Obamacare sites?
Who would have thought something could go wrong with such a great idea?
IDs couldn’t be verified? They don’t require an ID if you go in person.
More Hanky Panky in Utah
Isn’t this a supposed to be a Caucus, where citizens gather to listen and discuss before voting?
How is this a Caucus? It’s not. It’s an online primary election.
probably the same people who set up ORCA...
(Willard’s phony useless and secret and sacred Election Day website that he wasted millions of the little donors dollars on...)
10000 could not be verified because they were not voting for Cruz?
A cult, running an online election. Un, freakin, believable.
Not the Democrats. We just 14-16K turn out in the Ada County (Boise), Idaho Dem Caucus. This comes the day after 7K turned out to see Sanders speak at Boise State. Yeah. In "redder than red" Idaho!
Meanwhile, two weeks ago, on Republican primary night, maybe 150 came out to the results party at a hotel ballroom.
Republicans, you don't have this thing in the bag! Get your holier-than-thou heads out of your lazy a**es and DO SOMETHING!!! Right freakin' now, or it'll be 2008 all over again!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Gee whiz, it's SO hard keeping this English thing straight.
There they're their.
Yes indeed, it's tough.
Welcome to Utah politics.
...Then came the Presidential Ballot.
Someone shows up with a stack of probably 250 ballots. The precinct chair splits them up, and starts handing stacks of them out and tells people “take one and pass it down”.
No checking credentials, IDs, NOTHING.
I’m sitting at the end of a row and people start handing me stacks of extras. I literally had over 50 ballots in my hand.
UTAH RESULTS ARE A COMPLETE SHAM
And it just cost Trump 40 delegates.
