Hawaii Voter Registration

The Hawaii Office of Elections is the final authority on election policy, procedures, and deadlines in Hawaii. The information here is provided as general guidance, only.

Voter Registration

Registering to Vote in Hawaiʻi for the First Time

You can register to vote online or mail in a Hawaii Voter Registration Application form. 

Note: If, when registering to vote in Hawaii for the first time, you do not have a Hawaii Driver License, Hawaii State ID, or Social Security number, you must submit a copy of either:

  • A current and valid photo identification; or
  • A current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or another government document that shows your name and address

The County Elections Divisions provide same-day registration at voter service centers. New Hawaii voters can register and vote in person. Similarly, registered Hawaii voters can update their voter registration and vote in-person. 

For purposes of registering to vote, there is no address-matching requirement. If your Hawaii Driver License or Hawaii State ID contains an old address, the ID is still acceptable, and you may use the ID number to complete the voter registration application. The ID is used to verify your identity not your residence or mailing address.
