Iowa Democrats are trying to expand access to the leadoff presidential caucuses by allowing out-of-state military members and Iowans living abroad to participate remotely.
Party officials are announcing details of their "tele-caucus" plan Tuesday. This would cover active duty military members serving out of state and some Iowa residents who are living abroad, including those in the Peace Corps and diplomatic personnel, military family members and students.
The tele-caucus will be held at the same time as the caucuses on Feb. 1. Eligible participants must register online ahead of time and will call in or use Skype to join on caucus night.
The tele-caucus is part of a series of efforts to expand access to the process.
