Who can register?

Any person may register to vote if s/he meets the following qualifications:

  • a U.S. citizen;
  • at least 16 years of age (pre-registration); and
  • a Hawaii resident

When should I re-register to vote? 

Re-register to vote if you have changed your name, changed your residence, or changed your mailing address.

On election day, election officials are required to re-verify the registration status of persons not listed in the pollbooks. Re-registering to vote will help to avoid delays at the polling place on election day.

Am I registered?

A Notice of Voter Registration and Address Confirmation postcard (a.k.a. the yellow voter card) will notify you of your polling place. Postcards are mailed to all registered voters in May of even numbered years. Postcard mailings are also conducted in July, September, and October for voters that have updated their information. If you received the postcard, you are properly registered.

A voter lookup application is administered by the State of Hawaii Office of Elections. It is updated periodically and may not necessarily reflect the most current updates. Check on your polling place at the State Office of Election's website.
