How is a caucus different than a primary?

In a caucus the party members gather together for face-to-face meetings in each precinct. Different caucuses operate differently. For example, Republicans at each of the 1,784 precincts of the Iowa caucus meet up, and after discussion, place their vote into a hat by secret ballot. The Iowa Democrats have a much more interesting process. At each precinct the voters gather into "preference groups" and then try to convince others to join their group. Groups that don't pass a "viability threshold" of usually between 15% and 25% must disband and the individuals must join one of the remaining groups. At the end the delegates are apportioned according to the size of each preference group. All states (and before that, colonies) used to vote by caucus. However in many places the caucuses turned too corrupt, and were then replaced by other systems. The more common system today is the primary, where people walk into an election booth and cast a vote.

Why is Iowa first?

Because of the uniqueness of the caucus system used, as opposed to the primary system in most other states.
