this year's primary election. And a strong turn out at Oahu's DRIVE-THRU registration sites. Check out the scene fronting the State Capitol today. State elections officials say this drive-through service was a way to make one last push to get people registered and ultimately increase Hawaii's historically low voter turnout. And so far... So good. "IT'S BEEN GOING GREAT. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN COMING IN AND DROPPING OFF COMPLETED REGISTRATION FORMS OR JUST WANTING TO REGISTER TODAY. IT'S A GOOD, CONVENIENT THING FOR THEM." "I JUST SEEN EM ON THE NEWS YESTERDAY SO FIGURED I JUST COME TODAY. IT'S MUCH EASIER." The primary election is on August 9th. And through a bill signed into law by the Governor last week... You'll be able to register to vote at absentee polling places in 2016... and at PRECINCT polling places in 20-18.
