The Iowa caucuses provide a unique forum for civic engagement.

Every four years, Iowa commands the national spotlight. As the first official contest in the nominating process for president of the United States, candidates from both political parties and the citizens of the State of Iowa take the process seriously.

At Microsoft, we understand that technology can empower people and organizations to discover creative ways to address enduring problems and opportunities. That is why we are honored to support the 2016 Iowa caucus via a new, mobile-enabled, cloud-based platform that will facilitate accuracy and efficiency of the reporting process.

We are excited to work with such a great partner to bring the citizens and political parties in the state of Iowa the technology, data, and business intelligence to help make the caucus reporting efficient, accurate, and secure.
