2022 Endorsements

This year, HCAN Speaks! chose 22 state house and senate candidates to endorse, and 15 are moving on to the next election. We’re prepared to mobilize all of our efforts to help these candidates win their seats — and we hope you will join us. Similarly, should the candidates be elected, we’re prepared to hold each of them accountable for the answers they gave us. Below you will find a list of those still on the ballot. Click their names to learn more.

Tell your friends and family

If you have friends and family members in any of these districts, let them know about our endorsement and tell them why it’s important to have elected officials who will fight for our children and families. Make sure they remember that Hawaiʻi is voting by mail! Primary election ballots must be received (not postmarked) by August 13 at 7 pm.
