Iowa Caucus 2016

TUCSON, Ariz. — Are you from Iowa, but don't plan to be around for the Democratic caucus? You can still cast your vote from Arizona, but you have to be registered soon.

Democratic voters in Iowa will caucus for their preferred presidential candidate on Feb. 3 in the first vote of any kind on the 2020 presidential race. It's a big moment for Iowa voters, who have been hearing from Democratic candidates in the state for at least a year.

But if you thought Iowans have to be in Iowa to participate in the caucus process (which is much different than general election voting), you'd be wrong. The Iowa Democratic party is hosting caucuses across the globe for Iowans who are out of the state next month.

At least four of those locations will be in Arizona -- one in San Tan Valley, two in Tucson and one in Green Valley -- according to the Iowa Democratic party's website . Iowans who want to participate need to register no later than Friday, Jan. 17.
