Mobile App Disaster in Iowa

The United States is still swept with disbelief as the Iowa caucus voting results were delayed by almost an entire day. The cause for this issue? A mobile app disaster. Voters were given the option on Monday to place their decision for their democratic candidate with a new mobile app that the government was using for the first time. Unfortunately, the app failed to log many of these votes which lead to a large delay in collecting final tallies. In response, the issue was described as a simple “coding issue” and was not the result of any security breach. Do you think a mobile application would make sense to use in voting circumstances?
