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.
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; http://hawaii.gov/elections/forms/absentee_application.pdf
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.
