Absentee Voter Ballot Reminder – Deadline: August 2, 2014


If you have already registered to vote, you have the option of casting an absentee ballot. This is valuable if you know you cannot physically be at the polling place or you will be out of town for a conference or vacation that day. The absentee ballot allows you to vote before the Primary Election.

Complete Your Application

Your City or County Clerk’s office must receive your application no later than Saturday, August 2, 2014. This will allow time for processing before the Primary Election on Saturday, August 9, 2014.

Application Location
Absentee voter ballots are available at:

  • Satellite City Halls
  • Office of the City/County Clerks
  • U.S. Post Offices
  • All public libraries
  • All state agencies

For your convenience, you may also download a PDF form from the Office of Elections website at;

Specify the address you would like your absentee ballot to be mailed. You may include a separate address to mail your General Election absentee ballot, if it’s different from the address for your Primary Election absentee ballot.

If there is a chance your ballot will reach your forwarding address before your arrival, please check the box marked “Hold for Arrival” on the Wikiwiki Absentee Application.

Once you receive your absentee ballot, be sure to complete it and mail it back right away as it must be received no later than the close of polls on Election Day.

You also have the option to go to walk-in polling sites with your voter absentee ballot. These polling sites are located at the City or County Clerk’s office. Please contact them for polling hours.



What Goes Into a Congressional Candidate Endorsement?


The interviews with congressional candidates covered a broad spectrum of issues including:

  • Federal funding for academic programs and research as well as student financial aid;
  • The role of accrediting agencies; and
  • The erosion of employee rights across the nation and in Hawaii

You can rest assured that UHPA’s Political Endorsement Committee conducted a rigorous interview process of the candidates before making any recommendations for endorsements. Click here for a list of endorsed congressional candidates.

What Goes Into a State Legislative Candidate Endorsement?


The UHPA Board of Directors has a designated Political Endorsement Committee, composed of faculty from various UH campuses, to review state legislative candidate positions and conduct interviews with candidates to formulate endorsement decisions.

It is important to note that UHPA did not make endorsements in all races.

The Political Endorsement Committee pulled no punches and asked pointed questions in different categories:

  • Reinstating tenured positions
  • Affordable housing for younger faculty
  • Pension and healthcare contributions
  • Collective bargaining rights
