An audit of Hawaii County’s registered voter rolls found four people voted twice in 2010 elections and between 50 and 60 people were registered more than once, County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi said Tuesday.
Kawauchi says her office found no sign of systemic problems. She says a clerical error may be at fault, but she reported the four voters who cast ballots twice to the state attorney general’s office during a meeting last week.
She said it’s not up to her whether there will be an investigation into the matter, and declined to comment further.
Kawauchi spoke to the news media at the state Capitol after meeting with state election officials and clerks of other Hawaii counties.
Her office began their audit the weekend of July 21-22. She explained she closed her office on the following Monday — forwarding telephone calls to a Kona office and redirecting in-person visitors to another office across the hall — so her staff could complete the audit without interruption.
