The DNC makes efforts to reform the role superdelegates play in presidential nominations.
Earlier Saturday during a meeting in Chicago, the DNC approved a measure prohibiting superdelegates from voting in the first round of the party’s nomination process.
Despite not being allowed to weigh in on the initial round of voting, the new rule does permit superdelegates to vote if the nomination process enters a second round.
The measure is considered to be an attempt to heal fractures in the party over superdelegates’ impact on the 2016 primary between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.
Both DNC Chair Tom Perez and Bernie Sanders praised the move after its passage.
