State election officials will re-examine vote totals from the Democratic presidential primary at the request of Bernie Sanders' campaign.

At stake is one delegate in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders and Hillary Clinton both picked up 27 delegates after the May 17 Kentucky primary. But one delegate is yet to be awarded from the 6th Congressional District.

Sanders trails Clinton by 500 votes in that district. State officials review absentee votes and totals from electronic voting machines on Thursday. If the re-canvas shows Sanders earned more votes than Clinton in the district, he could win that delegate who would otherwise go to Clinton.

The re-canvass begins at 9 a.m. EDT, with results expected by mid-afternoon. Overall, Sanders trails Clinton by 271 pledged delegates.
