WeVoteHawaii Elections 2016


The WeVoteHawaii ohana extends sincere condolences to Board Chair Linda Coble on the loss of her husband Kirk Matthews. Kirk supported WeVoteHawaii from its beginning through newscasts, attending events, and always being there for us. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Linda and the Matthews family.


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.  DOE schools:  If you click on the District-Precinct Lookup button and nothing happens (you see the spinning wheel), the DOE firewall is blocking access.  The lookup works on your phone or device not connected to your school wifi/network.  We notified the DOE to unblock the site.
