The Local Election Office will compare your signature on your voted ballot to state records. If the signatures don't match, your ballot might be rejected. Please sign carefully.
Hawaii will send a mail-in ballot to every registered voter ahead of the November 3, 2020 election.
Voting by mail is not as complicated as you might think. There are only a handful of steps:
All Hawaii elections are vote-by-mail. You can still request a one-time absentee ballot if you will be temporarily out of town during a specific election.
You must include your Hawaii driver's license number, Hawaii state ID number, or the last 4 digits of your social security number on your absentee ballot application.
Your signature on the return envelope will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match. If you forget to sign the return envelope, your ballot might be rejected.
Contact your Local Election Office if you have questions.
This is the statewide agency that is ultimately responsible for Hawaii elections. You can contact them with questions, but your Local Election Office will probably respond faster.
