Akaka Election Challenge Tossed, Filed Too Late
The Hawaii Supreme Court has tossed an election challenge filed by U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka’s granddaughter.
Akaka was running for the Democratic nomination for House District 6 on the Big Island. Nicole Lowen won the primary.
Most of Akaka’s concerns with the primary involved polling places staying open later than expected due to slip-ups by Hawaii County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi.
