2016 Democratic caucus Laramie

Nancy Sindelar shows her ballot cast for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders during the Albany County Democratic Caucus at the Ice and Events Center in Laramie in 2016. After Iowa’s Democratic primary caucus debacle, Wyoming Democrats are assuring voters the same won’t happen in the Cowboy State in April.

CASPER — As chaos reigns in the Iowa caucuses this week, the Wyoming Democratic Party wants to be perfectly clear: A similar debacle will not be happening on its turf.

Following the systemic failure of the Iowa Democratic Party’s new app-based method to canvass delegates in the first presidential caucus of the year (and the subsequent call from Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez to recanvass the state after a nearly weeklong delay in reporting results), Democrats in the three other caucus states around the country — Nevada, North Dakota and Wyoming — have been examining their own processes to see what risks they may be open to.
