|What is "Cache"?
A "cache" is a place to store things; your web browser maintains such a cache on
your local hard disk to store web pages.
Whenever you visit a page, your browser downloads it and stores it in your
cache. If you move to another page and then revisit the original page, your browser may
check the cache to see if the requested page is already there. If it is, the browser may
display the copy from the cache rather than downloading it again from the server. This
speeds up your web viewing quite a bit.
However, the election
returns pages on this site will change every five minutes during election night.. If your
browser is not set to check our sever for a newer version of the results page; it could
show you the old pages from your cache instead of the newer versions on our server..
Our server has been configured
to communicate to your browser the date and time of the latest change to any page it
serves. But it is up to your browser to make use of this information. This will only
happen if you properly set your caching options.
