State lawmakers Tuesday passed a measure that would make Hawaii the latest state to implement automatic voter registration. Senate Bill 159 passed a floor vote in the Senate with 23 “ayes” and one “aye” vote with reservations while the 51-member House voted to pass the measure with one representative voting “no.” The bill now advances to Gov.
