Republican Party seeks poll watchers
One of the Hawaii Republican Party’s most important responsibilities is to provide poll watchers in every precinct across Hawaii to ensure the integrity of the vote. The Primary Election is Aug. 9.
The registration deadline for poll watchers is today. To register, call 593-8180 and ask for Chase. Several opportunities for short training sessions will be available the first week and second week of August. Poll watchers can be as young as 16. More information is available at hawaii.gov/elections/factsheets/fspo402.pdf. Email questions to email@example.com.
