The general election is not until Nov. 8, but Hawaii voters will be able to vote as early as next week.

Mail-in ballots for the City and County of Honolulu will be mailed Oct. 17 and 18.

“Voters are strongly encouraged to have a plan for returning their voted ballot envelope,” says a press release. “Voters may return their ballot envelope by mail using the postage-paid envelope or at a designated official ballot drop box location.”

Ballot drop boxes at all 15 locations across Oahu will open beginning Tuesday and will close at 7:00 p.m. on election day. For more information and to find a ballot drop box location closest to you, click here.

On Hawaii County, ballots go out on Oct. 19 and should arrive at residences within the next two days. (Click here for more information.)

That’s also when voters in Kauai (click here) and Maui (click here) counties should receive their ballots as well.

Hawaii implemented a statewide all mail-in balloting system in 2020, but voters can still vote in person in various locations.
