Hawaii Recount Laws
This information was updated 7/15/2018 using the 2017 Hawaii Revised Statutes.
The only option for a recount in Hawaii is via the State Supreme Court: HI Rev. Stat. 11-172 states: "With respect to any election, any candidate, or qualified political party directly interested, or any thirty voters of any election district, may file a complaint in the supreme court. The complaint shall set forth any cause or causes, such as but not limited to, provable fraud, overages, or underages, that could cause a difference in the election results. The complaint shall also set forth any reasons for reversing, correcting, or changing the decisions of the precinct officials or the officials at a counting center in an election using the electronic voting system."
Note: In 2017, legislation calling for publicly funded, close-vote-margin recounts (SB 247) unanimously passed the Senate. The House has not voted on the legislation.
