What is "Voter Education"?

Voter Education is more than just making sure voters know when, where, and how to cast their ballots. 

Voter Education involves providing our voters with access to information on candidates and ballot issues. This informational "pamphlet" contains statements for and against each candidate and question, prepared by the Office of Elections with help from experts and offered to any voter who gets a ballot mailed to them. The "Pamphlet" would be maintained online by the Office of Elections, but hard copies would be available for free to anyone who asked.

The League of Women Voters of Hawaii strongly supports legislation that will fund such efforts. Other vote-by-mail states do this, and their turnout is wonderful. Educated voters are empowered, and empowered voters VOTE!
