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.
