Standing Committees

Each District elects a representative to each of the two Standing Committees, in the odd-numbered year, for a two year term.  The Chairs and Vice-Chairs of the Standing Committees are appointed by the State Chair with the consent of the State Committee.

Rules Committee meets in odd-numbered years to confer on possible beneficial rule changes. Their report is provided to the Convention for consideration, debate, and action. The Standing Committee Chair also considers challenges to elections, or to other actions taken by Party officers or committees.

Issues, Programs, and Platform Committee has in the past met in the few months before the election-year State Convention to propose changes to the Party Platform.  In every Convention year it also receives, reviews, and forwards Resolutions offered for the Conention delegates to consider, with its recommendation.

New Programs, Issues groups, and other activities are also the kuleana of the Issues, Programs and Platform Committee year round.  Two Vice-Chairs, along with the Chair, are appointed by the Party Chair, ratified by the State Committee, and work with the committee and its subcommittees.




Once elected a delegate to the state convention, you become eligible to vote in your county convention.  Your Precinct President may also appoint you, if delegate openings remain, and if you are a registered voter, a Party member, and vote in that precinct, and it is more than 10 days until the convention.  If Precincts’ delegations are not filled by April 13, 2017, District Chairs may appoint (from 4/13/17 until 5/3/17), and, in unorganized districts, County Chairs may appoint.

Trump Rally


Saturday, March 4th, 2017, ….. Noon.

Kilauea District Park, in Kahala, corner of 22nd and Kilauea Ave.

“We are grassroots not the campaign or paid activist. All supporters are welcome. We have security too. HPD.  We love the police.

Only positive remarks for Trump here while any protestors will be asked to leave.

Saturday March 4 at noon in Honolulu at Kilauea District Park is our coordinated Rally with the national support for President Trump rallies. Spirit of America-Hawaii,

You can show your support for our president by attending the rally and opposing the “globalist corporatist  media“ and paid protestors of the left anti -Trump losers. Local Press is expected to cover this uprising of support for actions and agenda of the president, across the nation. Spirit of America. Bring signs.

Our program will include speakers from many walks of Hawaii life. Churches, political group, elected officials, and more.

Parking alert!

Parking in the area is available even at KCC as the Farmers market finishes. Follow all police directions if park is full.”
Kimo Sutton, event organizer





A sample ballot e-mail is being sent again, Monday, November 7th, to every Republican Party member for whom we have an e-mail. Look for it, it will be filled out with the Republican slate for your precinct.

To simply look at your blank sample, this link is on the State Office of Elections website.

We urge you to vote the Republican ticket and, for non-partisan races, Honolulu County Republican Committee has endorsed:

Mayor – Charles Djou

OHA-At-Large – Keli’i Akina

and for the 20 Honolulu Charter amendments, VOTE NO ON ALL 20.

If you leave them blank (unlike the State Constitutional amendments) it will not count as a ‘no’ vote.

How can I vote now?

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th, 7 AM to 6 PM, in Hawaii.

Make sure you know your polling place. If you have the yellow notice post card every voter got in the mail, it tells you. To find your voting location, go to Enter your street name and zip code. If the link doesn’t work just search “Find My Polling Place Honolulu” …. the same site works to find every Hawaii polling place, not just Oahu’s.

Or call your County Clerk’s office.

It’s now too late to do early walk-in voting and too late to mail in your absentee ballot. If you mail it late and it doesn’t get to the Elections Office by 6 PM on Tuesday it will not be counted.

So if you still have your absentee ballot take it, Tuesday the 8th of November, to your your polling place or, actually, to any open polling place. Polls open at 7 AM and close at 6 PM.

Drop off your absentee ballot with any precinct polling place worker. You might preferably ask for the Voter Assistance Official if there’s a long line at the poll book sign-in.

As for voting at the polling place, bring an acceptable ID: HI Driver’s License, HI State ID, or military ID.

If you lost your ID you can still vote, go to your polling place and answer the intake person’s questions and you will be able to vote.  You may have to go through a separate procedure with the Voter Assistance Official.
