The Iowa Democratic Party on Sunday updated the results of the Iowa caucuses after discovering discrepancies in the tallies at five precincts, but the final outcome remains unchanged.

Clinton to propose anti-bullying plan MORE still places first in the caucuses with 700.47 state delegate equivalents, or 49.84 percent, the party said in a statement.

The total net change gives Sanders an additional 0.1053 state delegate equivalents and strips Clinton of 0.122 state delegate equivalents.

Martin O’Malley, who dropped out of the race after the caucuses, also received an additional 0.0167 state equivalent delegates.

“I am extremely proud of the collaborative relationship we have with all parties involved, and together we have made updates at five precincts, affecting only five county convention delegates out of more than 11,000 elected on Caucus night,” party Chairman Andy McGuire said in the statement.

After reports of disarray and disorder in some precincts, McGuire said the party will review the caucus procedures and try to improve upon the system in future elections.

“After every caucus, the party goes through a self-examination process to discuss what went right, and what can be improved upon,” she said in the statement.

“This process will continue this year, and in conjunction with our State Central Committee, our partners and our allies, I will convene a committee to ensure we can improve upon our caucus process while preserving what makes it special,” she added.
