Hawaii Absentee Voting

Any person registered to vote may cast an absentee ballot. If you cannot vote at your polling place for any reason or you will be absent from the state of Hawaii on Election Day, or you prefer to cast an absentee ballot you may vote using an absentee ballot. You may also vote at an absentee walk-in polling place before Election Day; please see Early Voting below for more details.

Requests for a mail ballot must be received by your Clerk's office seven days before an election.
