State sen questioning Big Island election results

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A state senator is questioning the results of a Hawaii County council race after the primary election held in storm-damaged areas of the Big Island.

State Sen. Russell Ruderman says he plans to file a complaint with the Hawaii Elections Commission at a meeting Friday.

He says voters were disenfranchised because they couldn't get to the polls due to damage from Tropical Storm Iselle.

Ruderman also is calling for Chief Elections Officer Scott Nago to be fired.

Nago says he was following the law when his office decided how the election would proceed. Nago says his office was told voters had access to the polls and that no roads were blocked.

Ruderman started the process of a more formal election challenge but changed his mind Tuesday morning.
