Hawaii County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi informed the State Office of Elections via email that the yellow cards for new voters or those who have changed addresses since the Primary Election deadline will be mailed out today, Friday, September 28.
The City and County of Honolulu Elections Administrator says there are around 4,500 yellow cards for Hawaii County. The City and County of Honolulu processes the lists on behalf of all the other Counties. Glen Takahashi says that number is not unusual–it’s comparable with the number of new or changed registrations in previous years and is consistent with other counties’ percentages. In Honolulu they mailed around 25,000 yellow cards on Wednesday. The other counties’ yellow cards also went out Wednesday, September 26.
The yellow cards confirm that a voter is registered and tells what districts they are in for County Council, State Senate, and State House, and gives their voting location. It indicates also if they have applied for a permanent absentee ballot, in which case the precinct voting location is not indicated. If somebody has registered since the Primary Election deadline and does not receive a yellow card within a week after they are mailed, they should contact the Hilo Elections Office at 808-961-8277.
