Important Reminders on Your Ballot
From Hawaii Family Forum, July 31, 2020
Vote, Vote, Vote!
As you already know, Hawaii has moved to an all mail in election. You should have received your ballot already and many of you have already returned it.
Some things to keep in mind:
If you make a mistake DO NOT USE WHITEOUT, as that will spoil your ballot. You can request a new ballot by contacting the City & County of Honolulu: 768-3800 or on-line by clicking here.
Deadline to request to have a replacement ballot mailed to you is tomorrow. After tomorrow you will have to go to a Voter Service Center.
Mail in your ballot as soon as possible - if you still have your ballot in your possession on Monday, you will want to drop it off at a Voter Service Center or a Place of Deposit. If you try to mail it in after Monday, YOUR BALLOT MAY NOT BE COUNTED.
Where are the drop off centers?
We recommend dropping your ballot in the at least 3 to 5 days prior to Election Day to ensure it is received by the deadline. Ballots received after the deadline but postmarked by Election Day cannot be accepted for counting.
You can drop off your voted in-person to a voter service center or to a place of deposit. The deadline to drop off your voted ballot at a voter service center or place of deposit is 7:00 pm on Election Day for collection by your County Elections Division.
Voter Service Centers - July 27 through August 7, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, daily, and August 8, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Places of Deposit - Final collection at 7:00 pm on Election Day. For dates and hours, click on a location near you.
USPS Facilities - Return your voted ballot through USPS by August 3 for rural areas and August 5 for urban Honolulu. For USPS collection times, click on a location near you.

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans.

This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.
