HONOLULU (KHNL) - Early voting for the general election begins Tuesday and registered voters in Hawaii cast their ballots.

These early voters call themselves the guinea pigs of the election.

"We were wondering what it was going to be like today since this is the first day here, but there wasn't any line at all," said voter Richard Frankel.

Early voters see short lines at the University of Hawaii's Campus Center.

"For some people it may be confusing because this site doesn't use paper ballots," said Frankel.

At Honolulu Hale you can choose between paper or electronic voting.

"The presidential election, the mayor, our state representative, the first district congressional representative, the four charter amendments," said Frankel.

That's where the homework comes in.

Once you've filled out the form before you go in to vote, you're going to want to review the four charter amendments on this years ballot, now they are posted at many locations in these voting areas.

"It's not clarified clearly, especially to the seniors. It's very hard for the seniors to vote if they are not aware of this kind of charter thing," said voter Sally Arakai. "I don't understand that question so I just voted."

Just bring a picture ID to cast your vote.

Early voting ends Saturday, November 1.

Locations are open Monday through Saturday from 8-4 PM.
