2016 Maui County Presidential Preference Poll & Precinct Elections

PRECINCT MEETING – On Saturday, March 26, 2016 starting at 1 p.m., Democratic Party members will gather in over 50 meetings across the state. These neighborhood meetings have two purposes. First, people will vote for their favored presidential candidate in the Presidential Preference Poll (PPP). This is sometimes called the “caucus”. Then members will vote for the local precinct party party officers, as delegates to the county and state conventions.

ELIGIBILITY – Voting in both the PPP and the precinct elections is open to all Hawaii registered voters, provided they have joined the Democratic party. Voters who are not yet formal members can join the party at the meeting, making them eligible to participate.
