Aloha Aina Party Polls Enough Votes for its Legislative Candidates to Remain on Ballot

Ballot Access News

The Aloha Aina Party, a new party in Hawaii this year, polled enough votes for its legislative candidates to remain on the ballot. Here is a link to the election returns. The law required it to poll 4% of the State Senate total vote (for all districts) for its two State Senate candidates, or 4% of all the votes cast for State House (for all districts) for its twelve State House districts, or to poll 2% of all the legislative votes from both houses for all of its legislative candidates.

Aloha Aina met both the 2% test for all legislative races, and alternatively met the 4% test for all the state house votes for its state house candidates. Its highest percentage for any legislative race was 24.81% in a two-person State Senate race, 2nd district. In the State House 13th district, its nominee outpolled the Republican in a 3-way race, and obtained 17.69%.
