How to See a Sample Ballot
The Hawaii state Office of Elections has a handy feature on its website: search for your name and it will tell you where to find your polling place and, better still, let you see a sample ballot for that specific polling place so you can study up on on the people running for office in your districts.
This should help prevent that moment where, even if you've been paying attention to the election, you get into the booth, look for the first time at the full list of candidates running for office and wonder, "Who are these people?"
Also there are state constitution amendments and city charter revisions to vote on, so you can do some research now to decipher the intent behind their typically tortured legalese.
