One week from Tuesday is the general election, and time is quickly running out to register and to vote.

Hawaii voters have until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to request that an absentee ballot be mailed to them. Contact your respective county clerk to take care of that.

Early walk-in voting ends Saturday at select locations around the state, as does late voter registration.

One exception: Pahala Community Center on the Big Island is open for walk-in early voting through Friday

The state Office of Elections said that, as of last Thursday, 80,424 ballots had already been sent in.

That’s out of a total 222,726 absentee ballots mailed out by Oct. 27.

It’s not clear how many people are currently registered to vote, given that walk-in registration is continuing this week.
