Registered to vote. 1919.


Amongst the different ethnicities to register in the registration book of those eligible to vote, in the office of Clerk Kalauokalani, Hawaiians were the greatest number, although this is but a small fraction of the total number of Hawaiians.

In accordance with the new law, everyone who is eligible to vote is required to register again this year, to make clear those who have died and who have moved to other islands outside of Oahu.

According to the tabulations of Clerk Kalauokalani, 477 full Hawaiians registered; 122 hapa Hawaiians, 87 Americans, 32 Portuguese, 25 Japanese, 17 Chinese, 10 British, and 2 of other ethnicities.

The registration book of the City and County of Honolulu is always open for those who are eligible to vote, everyday, for people eligible to vote to register regardless of whether they registered previously, before the last election season, because it is only this new registration that will be looked at for those who have the right to vote in all elections held from now on.

[What about today? With all that is going on today, make your voice heard in the next election. Register early.]
