Voting poll hours & other important information

Voters across the state are heading to the polls on Saturday in Hawaii's first-ever primary election held in August.

Previous, Hawaii primaries were held the third weekend in September.

On Saturday, polls opened at 7 a.m. The polls will close at 6 p.m.

To find your polling place, enter your address by clicking here or call 453-VOTE.

Be sure to have your picture ID with a signature on it for verification of your identity. You will be asked to sign a poll book to record that you voted at that polling place. Your voter registration notice is not an acceptable form of identification.

There are 233 polling places across the state, nine fewer than in the last election in 2010.  About one third of the voters statewide have been assigned a different polling place this year because political districts have been redrawn, a process that takes place every ten years.

The first printout will primarily consist of most of the absentee mail and all of the absentee walk-in voting, which ended on Thursday.  The second report should have about 40 percent of the count from the polling places from Saturday, election officials said.

The first printout will be released once the final polling place is closed, and the state is scheduled to begin releasing results every hour starting at 8 p.m.

If you have problems at the polling places on Election Day, please contact Hawaii News Now and tell us your experience. You can reach us via email at news@hawaiinewsnow.com, on our Facebook and Twitter pages, or by calling the newsroom at 847-1112.

Be sure to watch our comprehensive election coverage on Hawaii News Now on KGMB and KHNL and online at HawaiiNewsNow.com beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday.  Hawaii News Now will have all the results, including live reports from nine locations across the state, along with expert analysis and commentary throughout the evening.
