We’re now one week away from the primary election and the Senate chamber in the State Capitol is all set up for the big day.
On Saturday morning, the Office of Elections tested the absentee mail ballot counters and data network, just to make sure everything’s working as they’re supposed to.
“This is a statewide test,” said chief election officer Scott Nago, “so right now, simultaneously, the neighbor islands are also doing this, too. That’s why it’s a dress rehearsal.”
Everything checked out, as people representing various parties and groups were there to oversee and do the tests.
By the way, Saturday was the last day to request an absentee ballot for the primary.
And just a reminder to tune in to KHON2 News’ live coverage of the primary election on air and online next Saturday, Aug. 9.
