A bill in Hawaii’s state legislature narrowly survived a procedural vote, aiming to potentially disqualify Donald Trump from the 2024 presidential ballot due to his involvement in the Capitol riot.

The proposal would give the chief elections officer the authority to make this decision.

Local resident, Jamie Detwiler, said, “This is tyrannical, to say the least. He has not been convicted nor has he been charged with insurrection (cheers) there is no evidence of committing insurrection so please don’t waste our time on this poorly written piece of legislation.”

Senate Bill 2392, “specifies that election ballots issued by the chief election officer or county clerk shall exclude any candidate who is disqualified by a constitutional or statutory provision.”

The bill also reportedly “provides for a process for challenging an inclusion or exclusion of a candidate from a ballot. Includes a candidate’s disqualification as grounds for an election contest complaint. Specifies that electors of presidential and vice presidential candidates shall not be individuals who are disqualified by a constitutional or statutory provision. Prohibits electors from voting for any presidential or vice presidential nominee who has been disqualified pursuant to Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.”

Despite critics calling it “tyrannical,” the bill, supported by the state’s Democratic Party, passed the committee by a 3-2 vote.

It aims to establish a legal process to exempt or disqualify candidates from the ballot and has drawn significant criticism.
