The General Election and Voting

September 2, 2020

The General Election is on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. But this year, there is an important change – all voting in Hawaii will be by mail in ballots. 

Voters should expect to receive their General Election mail ballot packet by Friday. October 16. If you do not, you should contact their County Elections Division for a replacement.

Most Important – The Office of Elections must receive your ballots before 7:00 pm on November 3.

Mail in your completed ballots early to meet this deadline!

If you received a ballot and voted in the primary election, you are a registered voter. IF not, you need to register to vote by Monday, October 5, 2020. You qualify to vote in the State of Hawaii if you are:

A U.S. Citizen. Non-U.S. citizens, including U.S. nationals do not qualify.

A Resident of the State of Hawaii. The residence stated by the applicant cannot simply be because of their presence in the State, but that the residence was acquired with the intent to make Hawaii the person’s legal residence with all the accompanying obligations therein.

At least eighteen (18) years of age. Hawaii law allows qualified individuals to pre-register at sixteen (16) years of age. Upon reaching eighteen (18) years of age, they are automatically registered.
