Hawaii’s homeless voters face hurdles with all-mail system

Lisa Darcy tries every election to get at least a few more friends of hers on Maui to vote. This year, as Hawaii rolled out its first all-mail election, that effort intersected with the work she has done with the homeless community for several years through her nonprofit, Share Your Mana. But it proved to be a challenge every step of the way. Sweeps, ID laws, mail access and transportation all became barriers to homeless individuals casting their ballots and hampered the ability of service providers like Darcy who help them.
