Registered voters who have changed their name or moved since the last election should re-register before the voter registration deadline.
Those who wish to register must be U.S. citizens, residents of Hawaii and at least 18 years old.

Registration forms are available at post offices, public libraries, in the Yellow Pages, at most state agencies, at county clerks’ offices and at the Office of Elections website, http://www.hawaii.gov/elections.
Registration forms must reach city/county clerks by 4:30 p.m., or be postmarked by Thursday if mailed.
