Ben Katz Chief Architect ISPolitical is empathetic to those who contributed to and were affected by the failure to count the votes in the Iowa caucus and he points out the different kinds of failures that drove the melt-down.  Ben talks about other ways to bring technology to counting votes, the need to focus on the real requirements of field and election officials, and importance of improving user interfaces in situations where there is a wide range of phones, ages of volunteers and those with mobile app experience.  Election and campaign technology needs to be better than the old way of doing things in order for people to embrace it and use it successfully.
