“In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report.”McClure emphasized that this was not the result of a “hack or intrusion” and that the “underlying data and paper trail is sound.”The IDP told campaigns in a call just after midnight Tuesday that they would release the results on Tuesday, according to two people on the call.IDP chair Troy Price delivered a brief statement to reporters after 1 a.m., via conference call, echoing what he just told campaigns: The party experienced reporting issues, are verifying results against a "paper trail" and "back-up system," and the process is "taking longer than expected."In an earlier short conference at around 10:30 p.m. in Des Moines on Monday, with representatives from each campaign, the IDP said they currently had just 35% of precinct numbers reported and that due to “user error” with their reporting app, they found some slight “inconsistencies,” according to participants on the call. Some numbers, the party said, “didn’t add up.”The party told campaigns they were comparing the app results with cell phone pictures of the caucus paper worksheets, where caucus results are recorded manually by hand.The IDP did not take any questions.At one point, a participant could be heard shouting on the call: “This is an unbelievable explanation.” Another person chimed in, “I think he speaks for all of us.”One campaign aide described the call as being “hung up” on.Early Tuesday morning, after the second call, an aide with one of the campaigns told BuzzFeed News they were still unhappy.
