Letter to Lawmakers on Voting in a Pandemic

The State Office of Elections and County Clerks by Proclamation dated May 15, 2020 stated that Hawaii’s first all vote-by-mail elections – during a public health crisis no less – will only have eight Voter Service Centers statewide to conduct in-person voting, same day register voters, collect voted ballots, and more, such as respond to the confusion, mistakes, mishaps, and countless questions that vote-by-mail's launch will inevitably bring.
