Voting in Hawaii: Changes and Reminders

From Hawaii Family Forum, July 6, 2020

Elections in 2020 are going to be very different!  Gone are the days when you go to ballot booth.  Now, whether or not you like it, the ballot comes to you.  To find out how that is going to work, you can watch the video (at right) produced by the Office of Elections. 

In order to ensure that as many people vote as possible, we wanted to provide you with a few reminders.  First and foremost, (1) make sure that you are registered to vote.  You should have received a few mailings already from the Office of Elections including a signature capture card.  (2) Hopefully you received, and returned, that signature capture card.  (We can talk about security and safety at another time, but know that we have our concerns.) If you did NOT receive anything in the mail, please contact the Office of Elections directly.

Our website for voting information (ivote) has been updated with key dates and resources so check it out if you want to ensure you are ready to receive the ballet packet on our around July 21. 

What about the Hawaii Family Forum voter's guide? 

Hawaii Family Forum normally produces a voter's guide, but we will not be doing one until the General Election.  Lack of funding and staffing have made it difficult to provide a guide that will be beneficial to you.  As some of you have pointed out, many candidates don't even bother to return our survey.  So, as we have done in the last two elections, we will be providing contact information FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION on the candidates so you can make contact with them directly.  If all goes well, we WILL have a guide ready for the general election.

KEY DATES TO REMEMBER

You must register to vote (if you have not done so already) by Thursday, July 9.  You can use this link to register online OR check your registration status.

Your ballot package should begin to arrive on or around July 21.  Want to see what your primary ballot will look like? Click here.

July 27 - August 7, 2020 Voter Service Centers will be open Monday-Saturday (not open on Sundays) from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.  Voter service centers provide accessible in-person voting, same day voter registration, and collection of voted ballots. Voter service centers open ten business days prior to the election and on Election Day

August 8, 2020 PRIMARY ELECTION DAY the Voter Service Center will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Here are some resources on voting:

Mahalo for your continued support of our ministry in Hawai'i.   If at all possible, please share this information with everyone you know.  It's important that people are prepared for the new way of voting in Hawai'i.
