We're glad to see you've taken an interest in joining our Party. In most states citizens choose their party affiliation when registering to vote. In Hawaiʻi this is not the case! An individual must first register to vote, and then independently join their party of choice. We find it very common that members in our community are 'Democrats at heart, but not on paper.'
