The shift would give Sanders an additional delegate.


The change is meant to better represent the outcome of the Wyoming presidential caucuses.

In the caucuses, Sanders won 55.7 percent of the vote, while Clinton received 44.3 percent, according to The Associated Press.

"I have studied the Delegate Selection Plan and found that this is wrong," Richard Kusaba, a Wyoming land surveyor, wrote in his petition.

Kusaba said after Nevada, the "party realized that it needs Bernie Sanders' supporters in order to win the presidency," according to Fox News.

National Democrats were looking to prevent the chaos and violence that erupted at the Nevada convention earlier this month.

DNC Vice Chairman Ray Buckley, who attended the Wyoming convention, said everything remained orderly.

"All's well in Wyoming," Buckley wrote on Facebook.
