The Iowa Republican caucuses are underway, and we'll be liveblogging the results as they come in. Click here for our handy guide to the nuts-and-bolts of caucus procedures. The Iowa Republican Party says it will report votes for the following:
Michele Bachmann
Herman Cain
Newt Gingrich
Jon Huntsman
Ron Paul
Rick Perry
Buddy Roemer
Mitt Romney
Rick Santorum
"No Preference"

Results: AP | CBS | CNN | DMR | Google | NYT | Politico

5:46 PM PT: A new batch of entrance polls puts it at Paul, 23.5%; Romney 23.5%; Santorum, 19.5%.

5:49 PM PT: With 3% of actual votes reporting (according to the AP), it's 26 Santorum, 23 Paul, 18 Romney, 16 Newt.

5:53 PM PT: As Aaron Blake points out, "Last time self-IDed Republicans made up 9/10 voters. This time, around three-quarters."

5:55 PM PT: 6% now in, 24/24/22 Santorum/Paul/Romney.

5:59 PM PT: Based on the counties that have reported so far, it would have been Huck 30, Romney 27, Thompson 15 in 2008 (if the same counties had also reported early then). Romney, of course, went on to lose by a much bigger margin, 9 points.

6:02 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): The liveblogging continues in the next thread.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
