Following the closest vote total in the history of the Iowa Caucuses, Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Matt Strawn today provided an update on the vote certification process, timeline for the public release of results, and the availability of certification documents for public inspection.

As noted during the announcement of the Caucus Night vote totals, Iowa GOP rules provide for a 14-day period by which each of Iowa’s 99 counties are required to submit to a Form E document from each of the caucus precincts within the county. The Form E document is the official record of the presidential preference vote in each of Iowa’s 1,774 precincts. The 14-day period sets close of business (5 p.m. CST), Wednesday, January 18 as the deadline for county Republican officials to submit the Form E documents.

Iowa GOP staff is working throughout the day to assist counties and precincts in meeting this requirement by today’s 5 p.m. deadline.

Timeline for Public Release of Results & Inspection of Form E Certification Documents:

The Iowa GOP will publicly release the certified vote totals of the 2012 Republican Caucuses at 8:15 a.m. (CST) on Thursday, January 19. The certified “Form E” precinct documents will then be made available for inspection by presidential campaign representatives at 9:00 a.m. (CST) at the Republican Party of Iowa Headquarters in Des Moines. The certified “Form E” precinct documents will then be made available for inspection by members of the news media starting at 11:00 a.m. (CST).
