I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Hawaii before moving to another state for school, and who wish to establish or keep their Hawaii voting residency (i.e. at the parents’ address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students who have a present intent to make Hawaii their permanent home can establish residency in their college communities. The Secretary of State’s office has also stated that a present intent to make Hawaii your residence is sufficient to establish residency for voting purposes. Residency for voting equals domicile in Hawaii. Under Hawaiian law, your voting residence is your fixed, permanent home, the place where you intend to return after being away. To gain Hawaiian residency for elections, you must move to the state with the dual intention of abandoning your former home and establishing a permanent home in Hawaii.

Will I need ID?

To register to vote in Hawaii you should provide:
  • Your Hawaii Driver's License or State non-driver ID Number
  • Your Social Security Number
If you are registering to vote for the first time in Hawaii and do not have a Hawaii Driver License, Hawaii State ID, or the last 4-digits of your Social Security Number, you will need to provide a copy of one of the following forms of ID:
  • Current and Valid Photo ID
  • Utility Bill, Bank Statement, Government Check, or Paycheck that Shows your current name and address
  • Government Issued Document that shows your current name and address
Hawaii does not require ID to vote in person.
