Hillis Cookie Caucus
The poll watchers.
Before the real Iowa caucuses took place, Hillis Elementary School held their world famous Cookie Caucus. Substituting M&M, sugar, chocolate chip and Lorna Doone cookies for candidates, 5th graders served as precinct captions and poll watchers in garnering support and tabulating the results for the best cooking. The winner? M&M cookies with 39.1% of the vote.
