OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Your vote is your voice

Your vote is your voice in what you think Hawaiʻi’s future should be, how our traditions and resources should be sustained, and who are the best people to lead us. Simply put: Hawaiian voters means that Hawaiian issues will be addressed by our legislators. Your voice is part of a chorus, calling for a strong and vibrant lāhui.

I Mana Ka Leo—let your voice be heard!
