Hawaii County clerk to meet state elections chief

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 01:43 p.m. HST, Oct 04, 2012

Hawaii County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi says she will meet with Scott Nago, the state's chief elections officer and other officials at the state attorney general's office.

Kawauchi said in a statement she requested today's meeting to discuss the state's recent decision to run Hawaii County's polls on election day next month.

Kawauchi says attorneys from the state attorney general's office will attend the meeting along with Hawaii County counsel.

She said the county's elections division will also attend a state elections workshop today.

The state decided to take over operation of Hawaii County's polls after widespread problems led several Big Island polling places to open late on primary election day. Gov. Neil Abercrombie ordered Big Island polls to stay open 90 minutes later than originally planned as a result.

A dollar late and a dollar short. Why didn't she meet with Nago prior to the primaries when she visited the Attorney General's office to investigate irregularities in voter registration?

What a waste of tax payers money, county and state. Her arrogance and uncooperative with the state, not attending meetings, workshops, returning calls, all led to the state takeover. Now she wants to play ball and ask what they don't like about her General Election setup, I presume. Too late, you've lost everyones confidence if you ran the Election. Your arrogance lead people to wonder what you may change on Elections day without asking/notifying anyone. You've had almost 2 months to fix election problems, fix broken bridges with the state, and change your attitude(about workers and your confidence in yourself). Look up the word 'HUMBLE' and try to input the meaning into your life.

She should resign immediately because she only serves as a distraction and she should take Yagong with her.

No class! Kawaguchi caused the mess, and she should graceful resign. No fuss no muss. Easy on everyone else. Has everything to do with an inflated ego, pure and simple.

I think Kawaguchi ought to resign, but reading your comment - what a joke. Boy, I just love how people hate Hawaii! This kind of thing happens all over the place, dude! And what the heck is the nepotism charge? Is Kawaguchi related to someone who is keeping her in the job? Do you know the definition of nepotism? Don't use words you don't know!
