HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Voters can now cast their ballots in person for the congressional special election. Walk-in voting began Monday morning at Honolulu Hale. Election officials say about 90,000 people have sent in their mail-in ballots. That's just under 29% of registered voters in District One.
The deadline to turn in ballots is May 22nd. Monday, many people opted to cast their vote at city hall instead.
"I like change in the system, things that's happening in Congress and in the state" said voter John Thomas.
"If you want to wait until May 22nd you can drop them off at our office, 802 Lehua Avenue or the Father Damien statue outside the State Capitol" said Chief Elections Officer Scott Nago.
Walk-in voting runs from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM daily until May 20, excluding Sunday the 16th.
More than 300,000 ballots have been mailed to voters in the district. Results of the winner-take-all election will be announced at 6:00 PM on May 22.
