Not too late to cast ballot in special election

Advertiser Staff

Voters in Hawaii's 1st Congressional District have one last chance Saturday to cast ballots for the special election.

People with ballots may drop them off Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at boxes set up at the Office of Elections headquarters at 802 Lehua Ave. in Pearl City or at the state Capitol in front of the Father Damien statue fronting Beretania Street.

Ballots must be received by 6 p.m. Saturday. The Office of Elections will announce results shortly thereafter.

The election is to elect someone to serve the final seven months of the U.S House term of former Rep. Neil Abercrombie, who resigned to run for Hawaii governor. A regular election for the next two-year term will be held this fall.

The 1st Congressional District comprises urban Honolulu, the area from Hawaii Kai to Mililani, Waipahu and Ewa Beach.

Fourteeen candidates are on the ballot in the special election, which is being conducted primarily by mail-in ballot.
