New political party registers in Hawaii
HONOLULU (AP) — The Hawaii Independent Party filed enough signatures of registered voters with the state Office of Elections to satisfy the requirements for a new party.
The party turned in the signatures less than 10 minutes before closing time Thursday.
The party is led by former Maui Mayor Charmaine Tavares and Maui real estate agent Michelle del Rosario.
The party estimated it collected about 2,000 signatures. It needed at least 706 signatures from active registered voters — or one-tenth of 1 percent of the number.
