Problems on Election Day?

If there is a question about your voting eligibility at your polling place you may ask the precinct official for a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. This will allow you to vote (if you give them appropriate information). In the meantime, the Office of Elections will verify the information and you will be able to find out if your ballot was counted by going to the elections website at a later date.
If you have a complaint about election fraud or voting rights abuses contact Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Nammar at 541-2850. He is specifically appointed to oversee our state regarding these concerns and will be on duty on Election Day from 7am-6pm.

 

Amendments on the ballot

There are two State Constitutional Amendments and twenty City Charter Amendments proposed for 2016. For our analysis go to http://impacthawaii.com/2016-election-amendments-guide/.

 

Stick to the Issues

Personalities aside, we have a chance to restore our freedoms of religion and speech as they were meant to be. Future U.S. Supreme Court decisions hang in the balance as there is one vacancy, and the Court is now evenly split. Beginning in the 1960’s, the Court has affirmed removing prayer from public school, legalized abortions (over 60 million abortions since 1973), and upheld lower court rulings on same sex marriage. Currently pending before the Court is a case regarding “separation of church and state”. If the outcome of the election gives us a conservative Court we would see action by Christian attorneys in going forward to make a case to OVERTURN Roe v Wade.
