If you haven’t already put your ballot in the mail for the special City Council District 4 election between Trevor Ozawa and Tommy Waters, you may want to bring it directly to Honolulu Hale on Saturday before 6 p.m.
The city plans to be strict about picking up ballots from the U.S. Postal Service airport facility no later than 5:30 p.m. Saturday. That’s to avoid the errors that led to November’s election results getting nullified by the Supreme Court.
Early voting has been going on all week at Honolulu Hale, and continues until 6 p.m. Saturday.

Honolulu Hale will be open for in-person voting from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and will also accept drop-offs of mail ballots. Residents can still register to vote as long as they bring identification.
As of Friday afternoon, the city had received 32,274 mail ballots and 486 in-person ballots, a total that is just a few thousand shy of the more than 36,000 people who voted in the same race last fall.
The district includes Hawaii Kai, Kuliouou, Niu Valley, Aina Haina, Wailupe, Waialae-Iki, Kalani Valley, Kahala, Wilhemina Rise, Kaimuki, portions of Kapahulu, Diamond Head, Black Point, Waikiki and Ala Moana Beach Park.
