Nai Aupuni Lets Candidates on Ballot With Fraudulent Registration
By Andrew Walden @ 2:49 PM :: 6059 Views :: Akaka Bill, OHA

Why were some delegate candidates allowed to run when they failed to properly obtain 10 registered voter supporters?

From Nai Aupuni, October, 2015 

The Election-America online registration application included the statement: “Please enter the names of ten eligible voters that you hereby represent have in writing nominated you as a delegate candidate.”

The online application system was designed to not allow the applicant to complete the application unless all ten slots were filled in. There are a few of candidates who filled the ten slots by repeating names or with symbols and not with ten registered voters.

Na‘i Aupuni decided to allow these applicants to maintain their status as candidates because they received an electronic notice from Election-America that their application was complete. Because they received this notice, and because Na‘i Aupuni was unable to inform all of them that their application was being revoked with enough time for them to attempt to correct their deficiency, Na‘i Aupuni decided to allow them to remain as candidates because once registrants received notice that their applications were completed, Na‘i Aupuni’s policy was to allow the voters to make the ultimate decision on the appropriateness of them as candidates. Na‘i Aupuni also decided that these candidates would not be allowed to amend their applications after the September 15 deadline to insert registered voters.

Will candidates be required to disclose campaign contributions?

Yes, candidates will be required to submit how much was spent on the campaign and the sources of the contributions on the day after the election through an electronic disclosure to Election-America that the candidate commits is accurate and truthful. This information will be disclosed after the election.
