DNC says Iowa app won’t be used in other states

Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez said Tuesday that the app blamed for delaying the results of the Iowa caucuses will not be used in the remaining primary contests.

“It is clear that the app in question did not function adequately,” Perez said in a statement. The app was created by Shadow Inc., a company based in Washington, D.C.

“It will not be used in Nevada or anywhere else during the primary election process. The technology vendor must provide absolute transparent accounting of what went wrong,” he added.

Shadow, a company affiliated with Democratic nonprofit group Acronym, sold an app built to transmit results to the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP).

After results were delayed Monday night — triggering uproar from candidates and supporters — the IDP blamed a “coding issue” in the app.
