With less than two weeks before the August 11th primary election, at least one candidate is taking advantage of the county’s early voting opportunity.
Today, the first day of early voting, U. S. Senate candidate and former Congressman Ed Case, his wife Audrey and daughter Megan Ansdell, will vote by absentee walk-in at Honolulu Hale.
On Monday, July 30, through Thursday, August 9, the public can vote at Honolulu Hale Courtyard, Kapolei Hale and the Pali Golf Course Banquet Hall between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (See more information about voting locations and hours here www.hawaii.gov/elections/)
With virtually every legislator, two congress members, and a U.S. Senator up election, political observers say this is one of Hawaii’s most important election years. In addition, the mayor’s election could be decided in the primary election should one candidate secure 50 percent of the vote plus one vote.
“There are many elections throughout Hawai’i this year which will truly chart the future of our counties, state and country. These start with our choice of our next United States Senator, who will be responsible for taking care of Hawai’i in Washington and for leading our country through a critical next generation of great challenge and opportunity,” Case said. “For our government to be truly of, by and for all of us, we need each and all voters to make these crucial decisions. I urge all registered voters to vote: by walk-in, absentee mail or else in the voting booth on August 11th.”
Case, who with his wife Audrey Nakamura, have four children, all in their 20s, joked that he hopes all of their kids will vote for him.
