Early voting kicks off in Hawaii

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Early voting for the general election kicked off statewide on Tuesday.

And if you’re not registered, that’s not a problem.

Hawaii residents can register at any early walk-in voting location in their county. Residents can also register to vote at their polling places on Nov. 6.

At Honolulu Hale on Tuesday, Valerie Puanani Ching Pursel was among a number of early voters who came out to cast their ballots.

She said she likes to vote early to ensure her voice is heard.

“Everything seemed pretty efficient," she said. “I was happy that we were able to get through this in no time.”

You are eligible to vote if you are a U.S. citizen, a Hawaii resident and at least 18 years of age.
