Hawaii Office of Elections Confirms Kennedy Supporters Submit Needed Signatures for ‘We The People’ Party

News Release from Team Kennedy

PEARL CITY, HI—FEB. 22, 2024—The Kennedy campaign today announced that the Hawaii Office of Elections has confirmed Kennedy supporters have collected the 862 required signatures to establish the “We The People” party in Hawaii. Supporters submitted more than three times the required number of signatures. The official deadline to submit signatures was today.

The “We The People” party will nominate Kennedy as its presidential candidate.

“Mahalo to the people of Hawaii who made this great accomplishment possible,” Kennedy said. “I’m inspired by how enthusiastic people are to collect signatures, create new political parties, and rally for real change. This kind of energy is what will get us onto the ballot in every state and fuel our voter registration and GOTV operation as we head toward election day.”

Kennedy visited Hawaii in January and saw firsthand the aftermath of the Lahaina wildfire, one of the worst and most tragic examples of government inefficiency and corruption. He also held a rally on the island of O’ahu where hundreds of people heard him speak about how he will as president, restore the middle class, unwind the war machine, unravel corporate capture, end the chronic disease epidemic, secure the border, among other priorities.

The signature gathering effort was led by the “We The People” Hawaii Party Chair Kim Haine.

“Mahalo to all the amazing volunteers across our island state who worked so hard to make this happen,” Haine said. “We’re excited and honored to be a part of this historic campaign to preserve peace, prosperity, and freedom for all. RFK Jr. truly embodies the spirit of aloha, and we know aloha can change the world.”

The campaign launched a Ballot Access Headquarters page to keep media and supporters up-to-date on the campaign’s operations to get RFK Jr. on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. 

Kennedy is already on the ballot in Utah and has collected all the necessary signatures to be on the New Hampshire ballot.

Earlier this month, supporters of independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. filed political party paperwork in six states — California, Delaware, Hawaii, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Texas.

Three months ago, Kennedy returned to Philadelphia, the birthplace of the United States, and declared his independence from the “bankrupt two-party system.” He did so with the National Constitution Center behind him and the words “We the People” etched into the building by his side.

“We the people” are the first three words of the U.S. Constitution. These words symbolize that our government draws its power from the people that it was created to serve.

On Oct. 9, Kennedy said, “Like the Founding Fathers declared their independence from the crown more than two centuries ago, today we declare our independence from the corrupting influence of Wall Street and corporate donors that have rigged our economy for the few at the expense of the many.”
