Learn about selecting Democratic Party candidates

LIHUE — Kauai residents can learn more about the Democratic Party of Hawaii’s party-run presidential primary and ranked-choice voting on Tuesday, Feb. 4, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lihue Civic Center, Mo‘ikeha Building first-floor conference room.

FairVote, a non-partisan advocate for electoral reforms, is holding an educational workshop on how ranked-choice voting works and why FairVote believes it gives voters greater choice and a stronger voice.

The Democratic Party of Hawaii’s party-run presidential primary is Hawaii’s opportunity to impact the selection of the Democratic Party nominee for the General Election presidential race.

The PPP determines the allocation of Hawaii delegates committed to a presidential candidate and who are sent to the Democratic National Convention in July where the Democratic presidential nominee will be determined through a delegate count.

All enrolled members of the Democratic Party of Hawaii who are registered to vote can participate in the PPP, which begins with the mailing of ballots in early March to the culmination of walk-in/in-person voting on Saturday, April 4.

For the 2020 PPP, the DPH has developed a vote-by-mail plan approved by the Democratic National Committee, which includes voting for the top three presidential candidates with ranked-choice voting.
