What You Need to Know
 

The Basics

 

POLLING HOURS

Polling places open at 7 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9. Voters still in line after 6 p.m. will be allowed to vote. To avoid long lines at the polls, vote during nonpeak hours: between 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., and between 1 and 4 p.m.

IDENTIFICATION

Bring a photo ID, such as a driver's license. In the alternative, you can also provide a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.

 

POLLING PLACE

If you are not sure whether you are registered to vote or where your polling place is, call your county clerk (see numbers below under: Need Help?). They ask that you call before Aug. 9 or go online to https://elections2.hawaii.gov/ppl/

ABSENTEE VOTING

Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot by mail or in person.

To vote absentee by mail: You must submit an application or write a letter to your county clerk and specify the address you want your ballot mailed to; applications must be submitted to the county clerk by Aug. 2. You must return your voted absentee ballot to your City/County Clerk by Aug. 9.

 

WRITE-IN VOTES

They are not allowed under Hawaii election laws.

TIME OFF

Hawaii law entitles people to at least two consecutive hours off from work to vote if they do not have two hours before or after work to vote.

 

ASSISTANCE AT THE POLLS

Voter officials will be at each polling place to assist any voter who has physical disabilities or has difficulty with reading. they can help people vote curbside if they cannot leave their cars. Officials also provide other help. Voters can have persons of their choice help them in the voting booth as long as those persons are not the voters' employers or agents of the voters' employers or unions.

ELECTRONIC VOTING TABLET

Voters with disabilities, including the blind, those who have difficulty marking a ballot or those who have other disabilities, may vote on devices call Disabled Accessibility Units. One will be at each polling place; poll watchers will provide help.

 

Sample Ballot

 

Want to see the candidates who will be on your ballot? The Office of Elections allows voters to view precinct ballots online. Go to elections2.hawaii.gov/ppl/, enter your name and date of birth. The site will return your polling place and provide a link to a sample ballot.

» Select a party. Find the ballot list of parties and choose one, and vote for only the candidates of your selected party.

» Review front & back. See both sides of the ballot, as your party candidates may be on the back.

» OHA and county races. Vote for OHA candidates and local city/county races. Kauai and Maui have mayoral races.

 

How To Vote at the Polling Place

 

1. Make sure you have a photo ID with your signature to verify your identity for a poll worker. Check your yellow voter registration notice for your polling place or check online at elections2.hawaii.gov/ppl/

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

3. Verify the information in the poll book and sign the poll book to record that you voted.

4. You will be given a ballot. Be sure to check both sides before voting.

5. Go to the voting booth: Be sure to fill in the rectangular box next to your candidate's name completely The machine might not count your vote if this is marked incorrectly. Your vote will not count if you voted for more candidates than allowed in a contest.

6. When done, place the ballot in the ballot secrecy folder. An election official will tear off the ballot stub. Keep the stub as proof of your vote.

7. Go to the eScan ballot box station, where you will remove the ballot from the secrecy folder and insert it into the ballot feed slot.

8. If a voter mistaken votes more times than he or she is allowed in a single contest, the machine will return the ballot and display instructions for each contest that require attention. The voter should see a precinct official to go through a "spoiled ballot" procedure to correct the error. If a voter does not use a proper marking instrument or does not properly mark the ballot or leaves the ballot blank, the machine will return the ballot to the voter and display instructions for each contest.
