HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

First Donald Trump said the system was rigged and fraud was rampant. Now the other side, lead by Libertarian candidate Jill Stein, is making the same charge.

State elections officials say they're both wrong and fraud, if any, was too rare to affect results. The Washington Post seems especially snarky about this, possibly because it has been repeatedly accused of not reporting fraud allegations even though it did. The Post has whomped up a pie chart to show that we're all missing a bigger story.

Fewer than 20% voted either for Trump or Clinton. Almost 30% of eligible voters didn't vote at all. Almost as many didn't even register. The bumper sticker "No vote, no grumble," comes to mind.
