Election season is upon us again. Make your voice be heard by registering to vote and placing your vote on the Nov. 3 general election!
Don’t forget to register to vote by Oct. 5. It’s now easier to register online via olvr.hawaii.gov. The online voter registration takes less than five minutes to complete and all you need to provide is your Hawaii Driver’s License or Hawaii State ID and your social security number. You have to be a U.S. Citizen, Hawaii resident and at least 18-years-old.
The Clerk’s Office will review and approve your voter registration application. Prior to the election, you will receive a notification postcard in your mail indicating your voter registration status.
Can’t make it by the Oct. 5 voter registration deadline? Don’t worry! You can head over to your county’s Voter Service Center to register and place your vote on the same day. Voter Service Centers will be open on Oct. 20 through Nov. 3.
On Oct. 16, registered voters will receive the general election mail ballot. Similar to the mail ballot during the primary election, voters should put their answered ballot on the protective sleeve before returning it.
Voters should return their mail ballot by Oct. 27. After Oct. 27, voters should drop the mail ballot at a Voter Service Center or designated places of deposit. All ballots must be received by 7pm on Nov. 3.
Voter Service Centers in Oahu are located in Honolulu Hale (530 South King Street) and Kapolei Hale (1000 Uluohia Street). For the full list of Voter Service Centers and places of deposit, visit elections.hawaii.gov/voter-service-centers-and-places-of-deposit/.
