City Elections

Pursuant to the Hawaiian Gardens Municipal Code (Ch. 2.04), the City’s general municipal elections are held on the first Tuesday following the first Monday of November of odd-numbered years.

The City’s next General Municipal Elections will be November 3, 2015.

Register to Vote

To vote in an election, you must complete a voter registration form that ensures you are eligible to vote. The deadline to register to vote in any election is at least 15 days prior to that election. Voter registration forms are available at City Hall, the U. S. Post Office and the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office.

To have a voter registration form mailed to you, visit the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office web site or call (800) 481-VOTE extension 8683. In compliance with the Voting Rights Act, the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office provides voter registration forms in English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Tagalog and Korean.

Absentee Voter Application

If you are unable to vote in person on election day, you may request to vote by mail (Absentee Ballot Application) up to seven (7) days prior to the election date. You must complete an application for a specific election and sign the application. You will then receive a ballot in the mail. The voted ballot may be returned by mail or it may be returned on election day to the proper polling location. Click Here for Vote By Mail Applications.

Permanent Absentee Voter Application

If you are unable to vote in person on election day, you may request to be placed as a Permanent Absentee Voter. A Permanent Absentee Voter is only required to apply once and does not need to request an absentee ballot for each election. However, if you do not vote for two (2) consecutive statewide general elections, you will be removed as a Permanent Absentee Voter and you will not receive ballots by mail.

You must complete an application for a Permanent Absentee Voter and must sign the application. You will then receive a ballot in the mail for every election. The voted ballot may be returned by mail or it may be returned on election day to the proper polling location.
