Hawaii Democratic Primary Cancels In-Person Voting

Message from Interim Chair Kate Stanley

DPH Update 3.20.20


As we navigate this unprecedented situation, I wanted to personally share more about what we're doing to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Party-run Presidential Primary (PPP)

Today we canceled plans for walk-in voting on April 4th, 2020. Instead, we will add another round of mailed ballots which will allow all those who are registered to vote and enrolled in the Party by April 4th, 2020, to vote in the Party-run Presidential Primary. We are working with our vendor, the DNC, and our Party leadership to be able to provide additional updates on deadlines. In the meantime, we urge everyone who has received, or will be receiving a ballot, to cast their vote and mail it back.

State Convention

The State Convention is being rescheduled from May 23-24, 2020, to the weekend of September 5-6, 2020. We are currently working with our vendor and the DNC on a way to select our delegates which does not involve meeting in person. The Convention Committee is in negotiations with the hotel and are working to adjust dates and deadlines as needed through the SCC. More information will be provided as plans are solidified.

County Conventions

County Conventions are being postponed, cancelled, or county Party business is being conducted by other means. Your counties will let you know what their plans are as soon as they are able.


The Party headquarters is closed as of Friday, March 20, 2020, all employees are telecommuting until further notice.

We will not be scheduling any additional in person meetings and are asking for all currently scheduled meetings to be reassessed. The SCC meeting for April 18, 2020 will be held but will be conducted entirely through teleconference.

If you are a caucus or committee chair we are advising you not to congregate and to meet using video/teleconferencing if necessary.

In these times, the only certainty is that there is uncertainty. Stay safe, take care of one another, and stay tuned for future updates regarding our plans.

Mālama pono,

Kate Stanley
