What you need to know about the Iowa caucuses

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Scott County Democrats released a list of caucus locations Tuesday ahead of the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3, 2020.

The caucuses are conducted by the political parties and not by county auditors. They are held in schools, churches and other venues where participants express their presidential candidate preference and help form party platform planks (issues).

If you are planning to participate, you need to be registered to vote and choose a party. You will also find your caucus location by using your precinct, but that does not mean the caucus will be held where you usually vote.
