Description

In this episode, Sharon sits down with Mary Marantz, best-selling author, podcast host, and renowned photographer, to break down the system of the Iowa caucus. Iowa caucuses are electoral events that take place every presidential election among Iowa voters. Compared to the traditional secret ballot most American voters are accustomed to, Iowa has maintained the voting system used by our nation’s founders over 200 years ago. The caucus is a universally confusing concept to voters in states without the practice. Listen to walk away with a better understanding of the Iowa caucus system and how it affects the outcome of our presidential election seasons.

I know Sharon understands what she means when she says "our democracy" but occasionally I feel like the definition must be shared. Our government is a Democratic Republic and the principle of democracy prevails because the people have a voice. A straight Democracy would be where every person votes on every thing without going through a representative.
