Democrat Hillary Clinton failed to win all of the electors in very liberal Hawaii Monday, despite winning the state on Election Day.
Instead, of the four electoral votes apportioned to Hawaii, Clinton won only three. The other? It went to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
David Mulinix, Hawaii’s so-called “faithless elector,” told the Associated Press that he didn’t vote for Clinton because he felt that she wasn’t “qualified” to be president. But he added that if his vote would have made the difference between a Clinton presidency or a Donald Trump presidency, then he would have voted for Clinton.
According to the AP, Hawaii’s Electoral College voters are required by state law to vote for the candidate who won their state during the general election.
However, Hawaii Chief Elections Officer Scott Nago told the AP that Mulinix will not be fined or penalized and his vote for Sanders will count.
