Voter registration for House special election ends Thursday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Voter registration for the special election to fill Hawaii's vacant US House seat ends Thursday. Registration forms are available at all US post offices and libraries, at the Honolulu City Clerk's office and at most state agency offices. They also are available on the state Office of Elections website.

The forms must be received by the city clerk by 4:30 PM on Thursday or postmarked by Thursday night. Ballots for the all-mail special election are to be mailed at the end of this month, and are due back to the state Office of Elections on May 22.

The deadline only applies to people who are not currently registered to vote, or voters who moved into the 1st Congressional district from elsewhere in the state. If you voted in the last election, you should still be registered to vote.

The seat became vacant when Neil Abercrombie resigned to run for governor.

Hawaii's 1st Congressional District comprises most of urban Honolulu. It's bounded by Ewa on the west, Hawaii Kai on the east and the Koolau Mountains on the north.
