Starting this week, #Hawaii residents will be receiving a postcard from USPS. We want to remind everyone that Hawaii conducts #votebymail elections and nthe postcard is not specific to Hawaii voters.

◻️ Hawaii voters will automatically receive their ballot in the mail by October 16 for the 2020 General Election. Voters who do not receive a ballot in the mail should check their voter registration and ballot status online at and contact their County Elections Division for a replacement.

◻️The mail ballot packet includes a pre-addressed, pre-paid return envelope for voters to sign and cast their voted ballot. No additional postage is necessary by returning the voted ballot through USPS. Voters returning their ballot by mail should send it by October 27. After October 27, voters should drop off their ballot to a place of deposit or voter service center for collection by their County Elections Division.

◻️Voted ballots must be received by the County Elections Division by 7:00 p.m. on November 3, General Election Day, to be counted.

For additional information about Hawaii’s elections and to check your voter registration status, visit or call 453-VOTE (8683).

What exactly is an HTML ballot? It’s an alternative format ballot that allows voters to use an accessible device to vote and requires no internet while voting.
The HTML ballot is being sent to uniformed and overseas voters today, and will be available to voters with special needs starting October 16. If you spoil your ballot after October 29, you can get an HTML ballot to make sure you can vote and return it by Election Day!
To request an HTML ballot, contact your County Elections Division.
