TEACHERS: If your school does not have a School Level Ambassador (SLA) to print Student Passwords to vote in the official WeVoteHawaii General Election, please see your Principal or Head of School and have him/her write to us using the Contact Us form under the About button. For Practice Voting, individual Student Passwords are not needed.
DISTRICT-PRECINCT LOOKUP: District-Precinct Numbers are needed for both Practice and Official WVH voting. If this is the first time you are looking up the numbers, it is suggested that you read the instructions. Until October 28, the Office of Elections will be doing maintenance ofthe system between 8:00 p.m. to midnight. You may use the alternate District-Precinct Lookup listed below.
ALTERNATE DISTRICT-PRECINCT LOOKUP: If the District Precinct Lookup is not working, click HERE for the Office of Elections List of Polling Places. Look up the name of the polling place at which parents vote. Or look for the name of the school closest to the student’s home. However, this may not be the exact District-Precinct because the parents’ polling place may be elsewhere. Students may also choose to use the District-Precinct number of the school which they attend.
September 26-October 21
