HB No. 132 will eliminate existing audits by law. The very statute that currently provides a safegaurd to ensure that machine tabulation is acurately counting our votes is at risk of subversion through the introduction of this bill. The Office of Elections has refused to acknowledge that HRS§ 16-42 requires that a random audit of ten percent of precincts be conducted to compare the votes cast on the paper ballot match the output of the electronic voting system. Instead of upholding the law they are instead attempting to change it. 

Please email Representative Scott Saiki in support of this petition and against HB No.132 which will eliminate audits. Please encourage others to do the same. repsaiki@capitol.hawaii.gov
