BALLOTS WILL BE MAILED OUT — ONLY TO REGISTERED VOTERS– SOON. Don’t count on voting at your old polling places. They will NOT be there. It’s ALL VOTE BY MAIL. Voting service centers are few and far between–so don’t wait till the last minute to vote.
And if you think you should refrain from voting because you don’t like politics, consider this: whether we have rail, or change rail; whether we have clean drinking water or enough food to feed all of Hawaii; whether we do anything meaningful to address the climate crisis or whether we sit on our hands; whether we address our growing homeless population or provide affordable housing; whether we have restorative justice or continue policing and incarceration as we know it; whether we take the smart, informed steps to get ahead of the virus and return to some semblance of normalcy: all that and more depends on who is in office at every level.
But perhaps you think, “I don’t know the candidates. I should not vote.” No. Your vote matters. This year more than ever. Read this for useful guidance on candidates worth voting for. “Avoiding the lines, avoiding the chaos, but not avoiding your civic duty”
Your ballot will arrive in the mail about July 21. Be sure to mail it back.
Your ballot must arrive by August 8. No later.
DO NOT WAIT TILL AUG 8 TO MAIL YOUR BALLOT. IT WILL NOT COUNT.
p.s. This is the 100th year of women’s suffrage. Let’s make sure every eligible woman voter makes her voice heard.
Why did you send this to us? Jamaliah thought you were reminding us to register too.
