U.S. citizens who live in a foreign country can vote in federal elections, but former Hawaii residents who live in Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands or American Samoa cannot. A lawsuit challenging this reality will be heard by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals today.
On Wednesday, Oct. 26, Reuters released a new poll showing that more than 40% of voters are worried about threats of violence or voter intimidation at polling places in the upcoming midterm elections.
On Tuesday, Sept. 6, a federal judge ruled that U.S. citizens who formerly lived in Hawaii are not permitted to vote absentee in federal elections if they moved to certain U.S. territories.
The Democratic Legislature in Hawaii almost unanimously passed an automatic voter registration bill.
