Hawaii election campaign fund needs boost

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The League of Women Voters of Hawaii is urging taxpayers to support the state's election campaign fund.

The league asked last week that taxpayers indicate on their income tax returns that $3 for individuals, or $6 for joint filers, should go to the fund.

The league says boosting the fund will make it easier for candidates to run for office without having to use their own money or rely on money raised by private political action committees.

The fund needs help because it has dropped below the $3.5 million minimum threshold required by law for the money to be used for elections.

Once it's replenished, the league expects candidates will be allowed to use the funds for the 2016 state House of Representatives elections.
