Voting in the special election to fill former Rep. Neil Abercrombie’s seat has already started for those Hawaii CD-1 residents living on the mainland, Canada or overseas.

For folks living in the district, ballots are expected to be mailed April 30.
The election will be conducted by mail with some 316,000 eligible voters getting ballots. They must be returned by May 22.
