HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The deadline to register to vote in the general election is October 6, 2014. After a successful turnout for the drive-thru voter registration back in July, election officials will once again hold drive-thru voter registration events on October 6 at various locations. Individuals may drive to designated locations and register on the spot.
“We hope people will take this opportunity to register to vote. It's quick and easy. Just stay in your car and an election official will have you registered in minutes.” Chief Election Officer Scott Nago said.
The State and County registered 1,200 individuals during the primary election drive-thru registration. Currently, Hawaii has over 707,000 registered voters.
Registered voters that have changed their name or moved since the last election should re-register before the voter registration deadline.
