With the 2020 Primary Election just eight days away, the Elections Division wishes to remind voters to return their ballots in the mail as soon as possible or vote in-person at the Voter Service Center (VSC) located in conference rooms A/B of the Pi‘ikoi Building.

Currently, voters can return ballots in the mail via the US Postal Service (mailed at least 3-5 days prior to the election), or hand deliver them to the Elections Division or VSC.

Beginning Aug. 3, 2020, voted mail ballots can also be deposited in drop boxes that will be setup at the following locations:

-Hanapēpē Fire Station
-Kalāheo Fire Station
-Kapa‘a Fire Station
-Hanalei Fire Station

As of July 31, 2020, the Elections Division has received 10,845 voted mail ballots. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Aug. 8, 2020 (Primary Election Day) to be counted.

For voters who want to vote in-person or for unregistered individuals who wish to register and vote in the Primary Election, the VSC is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. On Primary Election Day, Aug. 8, 2020, the VSC will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The VSC also offers accessible voting equipment and serves as a ballot drop site.
