Limits us all

After coming to an understanding of a caucus, I realized this vital voting effort must change.

Under the current system, voters must go to their precinct in the evening and support their candidate for an hour or more, if Democratic. This Iowan event limits participation. Voting is the most important thing in our democracy, and it must be the most flexible and inviting endeavour.

The current system must be corrected to include a simple vote and be available to citizens for the majority of the day. That way the results will be more representative. In 2000 when both parties caucused, only roughly 120,000 of Iowa’s 2.9 million participated. This is abhorrent and must change for our democracy to be actually representative.
