Hulo! Thanks to you, on August 8th Hawaiʻi exceeded voter turnout expectations and set a new standard for voter participation in our Primary Election. The Office of Elections received and counted 406,425 ballots representing a 42% increase in voter turnout over the 2018 Primary Election (286,180 ballots) and even a 1.9% increase over the 2018 General Election (398,657 ballots).

In terms of decisive victories, see the list below for candidates who were fully elected in the Primary and do not need to move on to the General Elections.

If you’d like to learn more about the 2020 Primary Election results or any other election results back to 1992, visit elections.hawaii.gov/election-results/.

While voter participation was at an all time high, our kuleana hasn’t been fulfilled. Tuesday, November 3rd, is Hawaiʻi’s General Election and we need to turnout in record numbers one more time to make the final decision on who will serve in some significant congressional, state and county positions. Some of the races you’ll want to keep your eye on include the President of the United States, the two U.S. House of Representative races, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs races, and the Hawaiʻi County and City & County of Honolulu Mayoral races.

If you missed your opportunity to vote in the Primary Election, no worries! You have until Monday, October 5th to register to vote in the November 3rd General Election. Head to olvr.hawaii.gov/ to register right now!
