Presidential Elector Candidate
Aloha and Mahalos for considering me to represent Hawaii nui as a presidential elector. The electoral college has fascinated me since my first civics class in high school. The presidential election still comes down to a few delegates entrusted to represent the will of an entire state. We need everyone's vote to count! I have always wanted to become an elector because I respect that even one electorate vote is critical. I promise to represent all of the people of Hawaii to the best of my ability. I feel like I may understand how the state of Hawaii generally feels about counting in presidential elections. Growing up in Indiana, our state was 'called' before polls closed as well. Many states' electors are appointed, so I am grateful for this opportunity to be elected.
I want to take this platform to publicly say: I believe our state needs more wahine Native Hawaiian representation in our government and ask that you vote for her if and when she is running. In my judgement, in 2000 and again in 2016 the ELECTORAL COLLEGE has shown us that it is either unable or UNWILLING to step in and ensure that 1) the elections remain safe from foreign interference and 2) it will protect the sanctity of the office of the president should someone wholly incapable of holding the office get the most votes (which he did not, so...further proof something must be done). The presidential election must reflect the will of the people, who clearly have shown they are more responsible than the electoral college.
The people have been disenfranchised through this process for far too long. If given the opportunity, I will work with other states to help dissolve the electoral college and bring the power back to the people. I look forward to being a part of the (virtual) action. I pledge to vote on behalf of the voters of Hawaii at the convention. If chosen, I will faithfully execute my duties to the Constitution and Voters of Hawaii.
