Voter registration offered today

LIHU‘E — The Elections Division of the Office of the County Clerk will be offering drive-thru voter-registration services in the back parking area between the Historic County Building and state Department of Human Services Kaua‘i Processing Center (former courthouse).

Services will be offered from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Thursday, near the pop-up tent immediately behind the Elections Division back entrance. The deadline to register to vote for the primary election is Thursday, July 9.

To protect the health and safety of voters and Election Division staff, citizens are asked to remain in their vehicles, wear masks, and use their own black or blue pens. Election Division staff will approach the vehicle with a voter registration application and clipboard.

To register to vote, people must be U.S. citizens, Hawai‘i residents, and at least 16 years old. Individuals at least 16 years old can pre-register to vote, and will be eligible to vote when they turn 18.

Citizens can register to vote or update their voter registration online at elections.hawaii.gov, or by submitting a voter registration application to the Elections Division.

To use the online voter-registration system, citizens will need to log in with their Hawai‘i driver’s license or Hawaii state ID. Otherwise, citizens can fill out a paper voter-registration application, available at election offices, post offices, and online at elections.hawaii.gov.

Finally, citizens are advised to contact the Elections Division directly if they have questions or concerns regarding elections-related matters.

Official election information will only be disseminated through the Elections Division of the Office of the County Clerk, the State Office of Elections, or via the public information officer of the County of Kaua‘i. Election officials cannot assure the accuracy of election information obtained through social media or related sources.

For additional information, contact the Office of the County Clerk Elections Division at 241-4800.
