Today is the last day for new voters to register for the Nov. 6 general election.

Completed voter registration forms must be turned in to the county clerk’s office by 4:30 p.m.

The deadline to register by mail has passed.

Eligible voters are those who are a US citizen, a resident of Hawaii and at least 18 years of age.
