The deadline to register for the primary election on Aug. 13 is next Thursday.

And voting officials say they’re hopeful this year, not least of which because a new online registration system has already resulted in more residents signed up.Full Article: State hopeful online registration will boost voter turnout - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL.
