Green Party of Hawaii Sues State Over Failure to Produce Enough Ballots at the Polls in Many Precincts

Published on December 10, 2012, by in General.

On December 7, the Hawaii Green Party filed a lawsuit in state court, complaining about the fact that in approximately 25 precincts last month, there weren’t enough ballots. In a few cases, more ballots did not arrive for several hours, so many voters gave up and didn’t vote. Sometimes the replacement ballots were not intended for the precinct that received them. The case is Green Party of Hawaii v Nago, Maui County, 12-1-956(2).

The lawsuit asks for a declaratory judgment that in future elections, this problem will not occur. The Green Party feels that its legislative candidate, Keiko Bonk, would have done better if some precincts in her district had not run out of ballots. The vote in her district, the House 20th district, was: Democrat Calvin Say 5,704; Bonk 3,143; Republican Julia Allen 1,179. See this AP story. Here is the Complaint.

    Reminder – having ELECTIONS is one of the very few things that State regimes MUST DO — to give the delusion that the such regimes are democratic.

    I.E. How stupid EVIL are the robot party hacks in HI ???

    Unable to detect how many registered *active* voters in each precinct ???

    What happens to used and unused ex-ballots ???
    Re-cycled, burned, dumped in trash ???

    Funny they have enough money to sue the State but not enough to run candidates for office. That doesn’t make any sense to me.

  4. #3, lawsuits don’t necessarily cost a lot of money. If the attorney is dedicated to the cause, he or she doesn’t demand to be paid, or to be paid very much.
