NOTICE OF INTENTION TO DISQUALIFY
THE GREEN PARTY OF HAWAII
Pursuant to the requirements of Sections 11-61 and 11-65, Hawaii Revised Statutes, I, Kevin B. Cronin, chief election officer of the state of Hawaii, hereby provide this notice of intention to disqualify the Green Party of Hawaii.
The Green Party of Hawaii is being disqualified as a political party because it has failed to satisfy the requirements under Section 11-61(b), Hawaii Revised Statutes, by not obtaining the following number of votes in the 2008 General Election:
1. At least ten per cent of all votes cast for any of the offices voted upon by all the voters in the state or in at least fifty per cent of the congressional districts; or
2. At least four per cent of all the votes cast for all the offices of state senator statewide; or
3. At least four per cent of all the votes cast for all the offices of state representative statewide; or
4. At least two per cent of all the votes cast for all the offices of state senate and all the offices of state representative combined statewide.
If an officer of the Green Party of Hawaii whose name is on file with the Office of Elections desires a hearing on the notice of intention to disqualify, that officer shall, not later than 4:30 p.m. on the tenth day after service by mail of this notice or not later than 4:30 p.m. on the tenth day after the last day upon which this notice is published in any county, which ever is later, file an affidavit with the Office of Elections setting forth facts showing the reasons why the Green Party of Hawaii should not be disqualified. If the Green Party of Hawaii does not file an affidavit within the time specified, this notice of intention to disqualify shall constitute final disqualification.
Upon its final disqualification, the Green Party of Hawaii shall have the right to re-qualify as a new political party by complying with the requirements of Section 11-62, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Hawaii to be affixed.
DONE at the Office of Elections in Pearl City, this 2nd day of March, 2009.
