Individuals who miss the July 12 deadline can still register and vote at an Early Walk in Voting site within their county from July 30 to August 9 and beginning with the 2018 Primary Election, qualified individuals may register and vote at their assigned polling place on Election Day; however, they may experience increased wait times at the polls as they will be required to complete a Registration Affidavit and confirm they are at the correct polling place. These extra steps ensure the integrity of the voter registration rolls and the election.

The Primary Election is on Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. For additional information on the 2018 Elections, visit or call (808) 453-VOTE (8683).
