The poll yielded similar results to the 2016 presidential election in which a vast majority of Hawaii voters supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But this year’s election will be much different from previous years as Hawaii is one of several states to move to all mail-in voting.

Most people — 71% — say they’re satisfied with the all mail-in voting and 19% say they’re not. About 8% don’t know enough to have an opinion and 2% are unsure.
