Iowa voters will caucus tonight and vote for their choice for President of the United States. Between 7-10% of Iowa voters have shown up for caucuses in the past and workers for candidates have been doing what they can to increase that number. Voters have been contacted, many more than once. State Center, Iowa teacher Aileen McKinney said she's a registered Independent so she's gotten lots of calls. McKinney said mainstream media is filled with political stories and her phone keeps ringing and ringing. She said she's either being polled or being encouraged to go to the caucuses and callers want to know who she's going to support. And the nearly-retired teacher said she probably won't go to her caucus because so far, she hasn't been able to make up her mind about anybody to support. McKinney said candidates are filled with promises and when "you live as long as I have, you realize most of what they promise, they can't deliver." The Iowa caucuses meet tonight at 7pm and one of the first items on the agenda is voting for their candidate of choice.
