Hawaii

Officers Subject to Recall:

  • None.

Key Steps in the Recall Process:

  • Hawaii has neither recall nor initiative process.
  • In January 2011, four legislators co-sponsored HB 187, a broadly worded state-wide recall law that could include federal officials. It did not get a hearing in the Judiciary Committee before the session ended on May 6, 2011. See details and encourage legislators to get behind this bill next year.
