Man here says 'it's a disaster.' No one is checking in or checking IDs. They're handing out ballots willy nilly. Some guy voted trump twice

Says caucus volunteers are wearing Trump gear (they're not allowed to show preference). 'Actively bullying folks. Not checking IDs.'

Joyce Rice Ross, a Trump supporter who caucused for the first time Tuesday, said she had watched the Iowa caucuses on TV and to her "it seemed so easy."When she turned up at Palo Verde, she was shocked. "Here it's just random. It's a mess."What's more, although many candidates have dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination, the ballots passed out at the caucuses on Tuesday night included the names of many former candidates. This phenomenon happens across multiple states every presidential election cycle when candidates typically "suspend" their campaigns, instead of formally withdrawing and notifying state elections authorities before ballots are printed en masse.Bickford said most people at his table only checked the boxes next to the names of candidates still in the race, but added that anyone who balloted for Carly Fiorina or Jeb Bush — who have dropped out — for instance,will simply "waste their vote."
