Inside the Voter Service Center at Honolulu Hale.
HONOLULU – Mayor Kirk Caldwell today announced that O‘ahu’s Voter Service Centers are now open to provide accessible in-person voting, same day voter registration, and collection of voted ballots. O‘ahu’s Voter Service Centers are located at Honolulu Hale (530 South King Street) and Kapolei Hale (1000 Uluohia Street). The Voter Service Centers are open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. On General Election Day, November 3, the Voter Service Centers will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“With the current COVID-19 pandemic, we’re fortunate to have this system in place that continues to provide those on O‘ahu a safe and convenient way to cast their ballots for the General Election,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “I’d like to thank City Clerk Takahashi and his Office for such a successful and efficient election process. We saw its success during the Primary Election back in August when many other jurisdictions were scrambling to get vote by mail procedures in place, and now, we have a system to be proud of during these especially challenging times.”
“We would like to remind voters to have a plan to return their ballots,” said City Clerk Takahashi. “Voters may mail their ballot via USPS but during the last week we recommend using an official ballot drop box.”
Places of deposit have also been established for voters to drop off their voted mail ballot to be collected by the County Elections Division. The following places of deposit will be open on O‘ahu daily in accordance with park hours now through 7 p.m. on November 3:

In addition, the Honolulu Elections Division was recently awarded a $1 million grant by the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), a non-profit organization that strives to ensure that elections are more professional, inclusive, and secure. These funds are being disbursed to assist local election jurisdictions to offset the costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure a safe and secure 2020 Election.
“On behalf of the Honolulu City Council, it’s my honor to congratulate and commend the Office of the City Clerk and its Elections Division for being awarded this significant grant, said Council Chair Ann Kobayashi. “This national recognition reflects our many dedicated public servants who consistently perform the very important work of ensuring a safe voting process.”
The State of Hawai‘i passed Act 136, SLH 2019, implementing elections by mail beginning with the 2020 Elections. All properly registered voters will automatically receive a mail ballot packet approximately 18 days prior to the election. No traditional polling places will be established. Act 136 also establishes voter service centers that will open ten business days prior to Election Day and places of deposit for voters to return their voted ballot. If you have not received your ballot or need to request a replacement ballot, please contact the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division at (808) 768-3800.
