First round of presidential preference cards out in the mail for Iowa Democrats

Statewide Iowa – More than eight-thousand Iowa Democrats have requested a mail-in card to indicate which candidate they want to win the party’s 2024 presidential nomination. Results of this new mail in system will be announced in March. Iowa Democratic Party chair Rita Hart says it’s a new era after in-person Caucus Night calculations of the past.

Scott Brennan, a former Iowa Democratic Party chairman, is the state party’s representative on the Democratic National Committee.

Hart is not concerned about some Democrats reportedly switching their party registration to vote in the Republican Caucuses.

The winter weather is expected to dampen attendance at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Caucuses on Monday night — and Hart says that’s why the new mail-in process is a good move.

Since NATIONAL Democrats re-shuffled the presidential nominating calendar, will there be less money for Iowa coming from the national party and the presidential election?

Democrats can continue to request a card through the party’s website or by mail until February 19.
