Voter Registration Drives

Thank you for your efforts to increase participation in the electoral process through assisting in registering voters in Hawaii.

The following are guidelines to keep in mind as you assist in registering voters:

  • Be sure to point out the qualifications to register.
  • Make sure that the registration application is fully completed. It is important to have a complete residence address or physical description of where the voter lives for county officials to place the voter in the proper voting precinct.
  • If the applicant does not have a Hawaii Driver License or Hawaii State ID, have them provide their last four digits of the Social Security Number. If they do not have an SSN, have the applicant mark that they  have no ID and their County Elections Division will provide a voter ID that will be associated with their voter registration record.
