Voting on Election Day: Where to go and what to expect

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A majority of Hawaii voters have chosen to vote by mail in the August 2022 primary election. The latest state numbers show that trend continuing into Tuesday’s general election.

However, thousands of voters still prefer to cast their ballots in person, and there is still time to do so until 7pm.

You can register and vote at several voter service centers across the state.

  • On Oahu, voter service centers are located in Kapolei Hale and Honolulu Hale.
  • On Hawaii Island, you have the Aupuni Center in Hilo or the West Hawaii Civic Center in Kailua-Kona.
  • On Maui, voters can go to Hana High and Elementary School or the Velma McVane Santos Community Center in Wailuku.
  • In Lanai, the voter service center is located in the Lanai Community Center.
  • In Molokai, the Mitchell Powell Center in Kaunakakai.
  • On Kauai, the only service center is located in the historic basement of Annex County in Lihue.

Remember, as long as you are in line at one of those voter service centers by 7 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.

If you still need to register to vote, you can save time at the service center by registering online ahead of time. click here.

If you still have your email ballot, you can drop your vote in the official ballot box.

Generally, voters can expect the first numbers, or “prints,” shortly after polls close at 7 p.m.

There is usually another print around 10:00 p.m., and depending on what those numbers are, our editorial team at Hawaii News Now will start racing when the evening news airs.
