More evidence Hawaii doesn’t have to finish last in voting:
- In 2008, 175,526 people voted early in Hawaii.
- This year, about 180,000 people have done the same (so far).
These numbers are from Rex Quidilla in the state’s election office. They include early walk-in voting and absentee ballots that had been received as of Monday morning in Hawaii. ”We just hope people come out to vote tomorrow,” he said. CNN’s Change the List certainly hopes for the same. If all went as it did in 2008, Hawaii would need 11,466 more votes to hop off the bottom of the national list for voter turnout. You can do it, Hawaii.
