Mail ballots delivered to Hawaiʻi voters
Hawaiʻi voters should expect to receive their mail ballot packet for the 2022 General Election by Friday, Oct. 21. The mail ballot packet contains your official General Election ballot, an optional secrecy sleeve, and a postage paid return ballot envelope.
Election officials sent out more than 726,000 ballots to Hawaiʻi voters for the General Election.
Election officials note that ballots are only sent to active voters. If you have moved and have not changed your voter registration, you will need to update your record before you can vote in this election.
Voters can update their registration online at elections.hawaii.gov or by completing a paper Voter Registration Application found at all state libraries and post offices.
Hawaiʻi voters may return their voted ballot through the US Postal Service, by dropping it off at a ballot drop box, or may visit a voter service center in their county. A list of locations and hours is posted online at elections.hawaii.gov. Voted ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Nov. 8, 2022.
