Voter registration deadline is today


Today is the deadline to register for the Nov. 2 general election in Hawaii.

So far about 688,000 people are registered to vote on Nov. 2, said Office of Elections spokesman Rex Quidilla.

That’s more than in 2006, the last gubernatorial election year, when 662,728 people registered to vote. But it’s lower than in 2008 when voter registration reached 691,356.

Registration forms must be received by the county clerk by 4:30 p.m. to be eligible to vote in the general election next month.

U.S. citizens who are legal residents of Hawaii and at least 18 years of age can vote in the general election, but must register by today.

Those who haven’t registered or voted in the last two election cycles should go to the clerk’s office with a valid photo ID and current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows your address.

Voters will select the state’s governor, Congressional representatives, Maui and Kauai mayors, and state and county representatives on Nov. 2.

Voters are also being asked to decide if members of the state Board of Education should be elected or appointed by the governor.
