2020 election

State of Hawaii, Office of Elections

If you haven’t mailed in your primary election ballot yet, the clock’s ticking to get it delivered on time.

State election officials advise that you mail your ballot five days ahead of Saturday’s election. That's today.

Mail ballots need to reach the county clerks by Saturday at 7 p.m. to be counted. Postmarks don’t count.

Voters can also submit their completed ballots in special drop boxes called places of deposit in each county.

Election officials remind voters to sign the back of their ballot envelopes before they submit or mail in their ballots.

CHICAGO — Young adults have filled streets across the country on a scale not seen since the 1960s to protest for racial justice after the death of George Floyd. But whether that energy translates to increased turnout in November is another question.

WASHINGTON — Six months from Election Day, President Donald Trump’s prospects for winning a second term have been jolted by a historic pandemic and a cratering economy, rattling some of his Republican allies and upending the playbook his campaign had hoped to be using by now against Democrat Joe Biden.

But one thing about the Trump era has remained remarkably steady: public opinion on the president.
