Supreme Court justice blocks vote count in Native Hawaiian election

From Associated Press

A U.S. Supreme Court justice on Friday issued a temporary stay blocking the counting of votes in an election that would be a significant step toward Native Hawaiian self-governance.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s order also stops the certification of any winners pending further direction from him or the entire court.

Native Hawaiians are voting to elect delegates for a convention next year to come up with a self-governance document to be ratified by Native Hawaiians. Voting ends Monday.

 Nai Aupuni, the nonprofit organization guiding the election process, is encouraging voters to continue casting votes, said Bill Meheula, an attorney representing the group.

Federal judge does not block Native Hawaiian election

From the Star-Advertiser

An election of Native Hawaiian delegates to a constitutional convention can go forward next month as planned, a federal judge ruled today.

U.S. District Court Judge J. Michael Seabright said he would not block the Na‘i Aupuni election, saying it was a private election not subject to public election laws.

A lawsuit filed in August argued that state is illegally supporting a race-based and view-based election, and an additional motion sought to halt the proceeding scheduled during the month of November.

One of the plaintiffs, Keli‘i Akina, president of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, said he plans to appeal the ruling to the 9th Circuit Court.

Voting for delegates begins November 1 for Hawaiians certified by the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission. Voting ends Nov. 30, with a constitutional convention planned to start in February.
