Voter registration for U.S. House special election ends today

Associated Press

Voter registration for the special election to fill Hawaii's vacant U.S. House seat ends today.

Registration forms are available at all U.S. post offices and libraries, the Honolulu City Clerk's office and most state agency offices. They also are available on the state Office of Elections website.

The forms must be received by the city clerk by 4:30 p.m. today or postmarked by tonight.

Ballots for the all-mail special election are to be mailed at the end of this month, and are due back to the state Office of Elections on May 22.

Democrats Ed Case and Colleen Hanabusa and Republican Charles Djou are the leading candidates seeking to replace Democrat Neil Abercrombie, who resigned the seat to launch a campaign for governor.

Hawaii's 1st congressional district comprises most of urban Honolulu. It's bounded by Ewa on the west, Hawaii Kai on the east and Koolau Ridge on the north.
