ELECTION OFFICIALS ASK VOTERS TO UPDATE SIGNATURES

News Release from Office of Elections

PEARL CITY, March 26, 2020 – Every registered voter should be on the lookout for a signature capture card in their mailbox. Hawaii election officials are asking voters to provide a current sample of their signature to attach to their voter registration record.

“A voter’s signature sometimes changes over time and we want to make sure we have their current signature to validate their ballot for the upcoming elections. We need voters to submit their signatures now, especially now during these uncertain times, to ensure their ballot can be counted” said Scott Nago, Chief Election Officer.

Each signature capture card is directly addressed to the voter. Voters should sign their card in the space provided using a black or blue pen, fold it so their signature is hidden, and drop it back in the mail. The signature capture card is pre-addressed and postage-paid.

The 2020 Primary Election will be the first statewide election conducted by mail and no traditional polling places will be opened on Election Day. Instead, registered voters will automatically receive a ballot 18-days prior to each election. As voters return their ballot, they are required to sign the postage-paid return envelope for the County Elections Divisions to confirm their identity and validate for counting.  This check is one of the ways election officials ensure the security and integrity of the elections.

Voters who do not receive a signature capture card should check their voter registration by visiting olvr.hawaii.gov or by calling the Office of Elections at (808) 453-VOTE (8683).

To view a sample of the signature capture card and to learn more about voting by mail, visit the Office of Elections’ website at elections.hawaii.gov.
