PRESS RELEASE: State House Candidate Seeks Fair Electoral Process for Hawaii Island District 6 Citizens

News Release from Kalei Akaka, Democrat Candidate for HD6

HONOLULU (August 22, 2012)—Yesterday State House candidate Kalei Akaka (Dist. 6 Kailua-Kona) personally filed a complaint in the Hawaii Supreme Court questioning the results of the Democratic Party primary election for her district.

“I am bringing this lawsuit because I feel that due to the numerous voting procedure irregularities which have been extensively covered by the media, Hawaii Island citizens were not provided with a proper and fair electoral process,” Ms. Akaka said.

Unfortunately these irregularities did materially affect elections where the margins were just a few votes apart.

Akaka’s lawsuit seeks a recount of the ballots cast, or alternatively a re-run of the primary election for her district. “Due to the Hawaii Supreme Court’s precedent in the Akizaki case, where a re-run of the election was ordered in virtually identical circumstances, I believe that what I seek in this case for the citizens of my district is reasonable and just.”

Ms. Akaka is being represented by attorney Charles K.Y. Khim.
