Aloha kākou!

In 24 hours, the doors to Honolulu Hale will open for the final day of this year's primary elections. They will be open Saturday from 7 am to 7 pm with same-day voter registration and voting services.

If you haven't voted already, don't miss your chance to help shape the future of Hawaii politics. Per our survey conducted on our website, 97% of those polled are worried about the corruption in the government. Because of redistricting, this year, we have the unique opportunity to truly shape what the future of our government looks like and to vote out those who have taken special interest money to push forward ulterior agendas.

Every single State House & Senate seat is up for election, which means we can vote in candidates who represent our values and what's important to us.

Civil Beat has given every candidate the great opportunity to respond to key questions and address important issues. Check out all of the Q&A's here.

‘Ōlelo Community Media also gave candidates the opportunity to share more about themselves, their campaign, and/or their platform. Watch our segment below.
I also wanted to take this moment to say thank you. Tomorrow marks the end of a long 9-month journey to the primaries, and this experience has exceeded all of our wildest expectations. We've had so many incredible conversations with our neighbors, union leaders, community leaders, business leaders, activists, students, educators, dog lovers, parents, grandparents, and so many more folks.

Thank you for answering our phone calls. Thank you for answering our door knocks. Thank you for joining our coffee talks and Meet & Greet events. Thank you for your emails. And thank you for stopping to chat by Makiki Park or any of the other locations we've sign-waved at. Your support, your energy, and your conversations fueled this campaign.
I also wanted to thank our wonderful team of dedicated, steadfast volunteers who spent countless number of hours calling, canvassing, and sign-waving. Running a campaign truly takes a village, and we could not have done it without this incredible team of volunteers and their support.
All indications show that this is going to be a tight race, and you made this a race no one will ever forget. Thank you for believing in us and for being a part of our journey,
Did you mail in your ballot but are not sure if it was received in time?
You can now check online to make sure your ballot was received. If not, you can still stop by Honolulu Hale to cast your vote in person.
