HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On the 2018 primary election ballot in Hawaii, the Constitution Party will be listed first.

And that's just pure luck.

On Wednesday, the state Elections Office held a random drawing (think plucking names from a lauhala basket) to decide the order of political preferences on the ballot.

If you've never heard of the Constitution Party, you're not alone. The conservative party was formed in 1992, and members hold about two dozen seats nationally (all at the state or local level).

Hawaii is among at least 14 states in which the party will appear on ballots.

After the Constitution Party, here's the order you'll see:

  • Green Party
  • Democratic Party
  • Libertarian Party
  • Nonpartisan Ballot
  • Republican Party

The primary election in Hawaii is Aug. 11.
