The confusion surrounding the Iowa caucus continues as more inconsistencies and errors appeared in the latest results. According to new reports, data is missing in some cases. The wrong number of delegates was given to candidates and the Iowa Democrat Party’s results don’t match the data from some precincts.

However, there’s no evidence anyone tried to rig the caucus and election officials are blaming technical errors on delays in getting results together.

It remains unclear when the rest of the results to be released. Only 97 percent of results have been released so far.

As of Thursday morning, Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders were virtually tied for first place, followed by Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.

The Democratic National Committee has called for an immediate recanvassing of those results. On Thursday, Chairman Tom Perez tweeted that “enough is enough” and said a recanvass needs to be done to reassure public confidence.

This would require local election officials to go through each caucus card all over again.
