Where and How to Register

Alternatively, you may register in person at your local DMV.

If you would prefer not to print the form, you can also pick one up at the following locations:

  • Public libraries
  • City halls
  • Phone directories
  • US post offices
  • University of Hawaii systems
  • Most state service agencies

Anyone registering for the first time or mailing their application must show (in person) or provide a copy (mail-in) of one of the following documents that show both your name and address:

  • Hawaii driver’s license or ID card
  • Current utility bill
  • Current bank statement
  • Current government or other paycheck
  • Any other government document that shows your name and address

You have the option to register without showing proof of identity, but if you do so you must show them at the polling place on Election Day.
