The State of Hawaii passed Act 136, SLH 2019, implementing elections by mail beginning with the 2020 Elections.
The state Office of Elections will be mailing over 658,000 postcards to active registered voters in Hawaii to raise awareness of its transition to by-mail voting in the 2020 elections.
The postcards will be part of a series of election-related mail to inform the public; voters should expect the postcards to arrive in seven to 10 days.
“We want to remind voters that receipt of an election mailing now ensures they will receive their ballot for the upcoming election. As Hawaii transitions to voting by mail, it is important that voters keep their registration up to date, as ballots, by law, are not forwardable,” Chief Election Officer Scott Nago said in a news release today.
The Office of Elections suggests to those who do not receive their ballots to visit www.olvr.hawaii.gov to check their voter registration.
All properly registered voters will automatically receive a mail ballot packet approximately 18 days prior to the election.
