Hawaii Legislature approves all-mail voting

State lawmakers passed two measures to reform Hawaii’s voting system in the wake of two elections challenges that overturned the results in a Honolulu City Council race and jeopardized the seating of an Ewa senator. HB 1248 would implement a vote-by-mail system statewide beginning in 2020, and SB 216 would require a mandatory recount of ballots in races where the difference between the top-two vote getters is 0.25% or 100 votes or less.
