Register to Vote / Confirm Your Voter Registration Address
There are 769,000 registered voters in Hawaii, but over 14% of them are inactive because of outdated addresses.
Check registration status, update your existing voter registration, or confirm your voter registration address for the Vote by Mail ballot -- all online through the Hawai'i State Office of Elections. Outside Hawai'i County? Check with your county.
To register to vote, you must be:
- A U.S. citizen
- A resident of the State of Hawai'i
