Did You Receive Your Voter Postcard?

Posted on 05/03/24

Voter notification postcards were mailed to registered voters in Hawai`i last month. The postcards contain information about voting in Hawai`i, remind voters they are registered, and help counties maintain the voting rolls.

The postcards used to be called “yellow cards,” because they were previously yellow. But they now come in different colors.

All registered voters should have received a postcard at the mailing address on their voter registration. If you did not receive a card, you should contact your county election office or go online to olvr.hawaii.gov to register, or update your voter registration and/or mailing address.

If a voter notification card arrives for a voter who no longer lives at the address, election officials ask that you write “not at this address” on the card and return it by mail. The returned cards are used to update voter rolls.

Maui voters affected by the Lahaina fires should make sure their mailing address has been updated. They have the option of continuing to vote in Lahiana with a different mailing address or voting where they live now.

Voters can also sign up for Ballottrax notifications to receive alerts about when ballots have been mailed, received and accepted for counting. A notification will also be sent if there is a problem with your ballot such as a signature that doesn’t match so that you can correct the problem and your ballot can still be counted.

Hawai`i holds an all-mail election. Ballots will arrive by mail around July 23 for the primary election and Oct. 18 for the general election. They must be received by the county elections office by 7 p.m. on Aug. 10 for the primary and Nov. 5 for the general. Late ballots will not be counted. For more information on Hawai`i’s elections go to aarp.org/hivotes.
