"Both the Sanders and Clinton campaigns have flagged a very small number of concerns for us, and we are looking at them all on a case-by-case basis," Iowa Democratic Party spokesman Sam Lau said.
 
The results have been under scrutiny since Monday night.
 
The Register’s editorial board on Thursday called for a “complete audit” of the results that would include a release of raw vote totals and the results of coin tosses, which are used to break ties according to caucus rules. Democrats in the state typically only release the number of delegates won by each candidate.
 
The Sanders campaign has also called for the party to release the raw vote totals at each precinct.
