Vote-by-mail voters have till 6 p.m. on Election Day to submit their voted ballot to any polling place within their county. A voted ballot postmarked on Election Day, but not received by the Clerk’s Office by 6 p.m. will not be accepted.

Qualified individuals may still register and participate in the Primary Election. The qualifications to register and vote are you must be a U.S. Citizen, Hawai‘i resident, and at least 18 years old.
