BY SAM SLOM – Walk-in absentee voting has begun at Honolulu Hale (City Hall) in Downtown Honolulu. The Honolulu Hale location will be open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday. Voters will have until Saturday, October 30 to cast absentee ballots.
Mail in absentee ballots have also been sent out. Please cast your vote and mail those ballots back.
General Election voting day is Tuesday, November 2. Your polling place may have changed. If you voted in the primary election, that polling place is the same as it was on September 18. The Hawaii State Office of Elections provides a page where you can find your polling place by either typing in your name and birthdate, or using the drop down menu to find your precinct. The link to that page is: http://elections3.hawaii.gov/ppl/.
Sample ballots in PDF form are also available after you find your polling place online. It is recommended that you download and study the sample ballot before casting your vote. There are numerous other candidates running for various offices as well as two constitutional amendment questions and a number of city charter amendments that require a decision by the voters. It is best to review these beforehand.
If you have any questions about the ballots or ballot issues at hand, you can call me at 349-5438.
