Walk-In Early Voting Begins October 21
By News Release @ 12:36 AM :: 3213 Views :: Office of Elections


Application for Absentee Voter Ballot must be received by the City/County Clerk where you reside no later than October 28, 2014, 4:30 P.M.

From Hawaii Family Forum
Our national associate, Citizenlink produced a humorous video as a reminder to "schedule" your time to vote.  You can view it here or by clicking the calendar box to the left.   Citizenlink asks, "Do you only show up for meetings if your phone beeps?"  Stuart Shepard has an important appointment for your calendar. And once you add that, we encourage you to share this video with your friends to encourage them to mark their calendars, too.

In the meantime, you should have received your absentee ballots in the mail already.  If not, it is probably on its way to your mailbox.  For those of you heading to the polls on election day, although this information may not apply to you, you may have friends and family that plan to either (1) mail in their ballots or (2) do early walk-in voting.  We have to encourage everyone we know to vote! 

Next steps:Take a moment to educate yourself on the positions of the candidates on issues important to you.  Use our voter guide to help  you.  Of course, some of the candidates did not respond the survey.  We have provided their phone numbers for you.  Give them a call and ask them how they would vote on those issues that you care deeply about.  Remember, they are vying to represent you in office.  Do their values align with yours?

  1. As people of faith, we need to look at the big picture.  We understand that once the elections are over, we will be working directly with our elected officials.  At a meeting a few years ago, a national leader asked the question, "Why do we elect people we have to lobby?"  It's a great question and something we should think about as we head to the ballot box.  To that end we have developed the third card in our educational series to remind us that our work is not finished once the elections are over.  (You can view card one and card two on the Hawaii Family Forum website and the iVOTE Hawaii website).  Pastors can contact us if they want these resources for their church communities.  If you are a pastor or church leader and are interested in obtaining bulk copies of these educational resources, call Allen at (808) 203-6714.

  2. We need to vote.  The walk-in locations and schedule is provided by the Office of Elections website (view it below).

  3. Voting on election day (what you need to know from the Office of Elections)

    1. Information and Ballot Demonstration Station:

      1. At this station, a poll worker will help verify that you're registered to vote and you're at the correct polling place.

      2. You can also get help on how to vote properly.

    2. Poll Book Station:

      1. Go to the alpha line that corresponds to the first letter of your last name.

      2. Verify your identity. In order to expedite voting at your polling place, please be prepared to verify your identity, preferably with a photo ID. In the alternative, you can provide a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.

      3. Verify the information in the poll book; and

      4. Sign the poll book.

    3. Ballot Issuing Station: The official at the Ballot Issuing Station will issue you a paper ballot and a ballot secrecy folder.

    4. Ballot Box Station: Cast your ballot by depositing it into the eScan precinct counter machine.

    5. Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) Station: As an alternative, you may vote and cast your ballot electronically on the Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machine.
