State Summary

Signed into law in 2005, Hawaii's audit law does not lead to a full recount but does require the entire ballot to be audited and is binding upon the official election results.


Note: While we have included links below to the appropriate statutes in the Hawaii Revised Statutes, much of the law pertaining to audits in Hawaii is contained in the Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 3, Department of Accounting and General Services, Office of Elections, which is only available as a PDF (click here) and cannot be linked to individually.
