Posted on Jul 2, 2020 in News Releases

PEARL CITY, July 2, 2020: New Hawaii voters have until July 9 to register to vote in the 2020 Primary Election. Registered voters will automatically receive their ballot in the mail starting July 21. Voters should also check that their registration is current, so their ballot is sent to the correct address.

“As we move to elections by mail, it is important that your voter registration is up to date. Ballots must be delivered to the mailing address on file with your voter registration. It is not forwardable,” said Scott Nago, Chief Election Officer.

To register to vote in the Primary Election on August 8, you must be a U.S. Citizen, Hawaii resident, and at least 18 years old. Voters can register to vote or update their voter registration online at or by submitting a Voter Registration Application to their County Elections Division.
