Happy Caucus Day, Iowa!

In Iowa, it’s Caucus day, which kicks off the 2016 Presidential election season. But what is a caucus exactly, and how does it differ from the traditional balloting process? A recent report on the 2016 Presidential nominating process from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) answers these questions and many more.  Other questions the report addresses include:

  • How do primary and caucus results determine the election of national convention delegates?
  • Where and when are the 2016 national conventions?
