1. If you are an Iowan, or if you are within driving distance from Iowa on Caucus night, you can perform an invaluable service by going to one of the the 1784 local caucus gatherings and WITNESSING the actual count, which will be done by a show of hands or on paper ballots, counted in the open right after the voting takes place. (Videotaping the event is the best, if possible.) -- You can then take a video, or a cell phone picture of the tally sheet, if possible, or just record the results by handwriting on a piece of paper. Then you either email, text, call, or post on our Facebook Page -- the results you witnessed at your local caucus, with both the county you are in, and address of your local caucus gathering included. For Iowans who are attending a local caucus anyway, this just amounts to a few minutes of effort on top of showing up and participating. (You would then copy your results by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as you are able to, even if it's later that night.) AND THEN --
2. We need volunteers for 99 "Computer Uploaders" -- who can be sitting anywhere in the USA at their computer. One of these individuals will be assigned to each of Iowa's 99 counties. That means each of these 99 "computer uploaders" will have a "vote monitor" (those who volunteer for task #1 above) from each of the 18 local gatherings (on average per county) in that county. The "computer uploader" will then upload the results to his section of this website for the local caucuses in his assigned county, and the results will go up on the internet LIVE in real time.
