Some Iowans aren't going to miss seeing election results tomorrow night, even if they hit the road. The Outdoor Advertising Association of Iowa and its members have joined together to link 10 digital billboards to give real-time updates of the caucus results.

The association's president says the digital billboards are in Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Waterloo.

He says broadcasting the caucus results on the billboards demonstrates the abilities of digital technology, not unlike updating leaderboards at golf tournaments.

Once a winner is announced tomorrow night, it will be displayed on the billboards.
