Dr. Alvin Onaka, DOH state registrar, said, “Even though our Kinau Hale office will be closed for the New Year holiday, the public will be able to use our new on-line system developed in partnership with ehawaii.gov. Couples who use the online system will benefit from a more convenient, accurate and efficient process that will provide access to an electronic certificate within days.”

With the assistance of community groups, the Civil Union Task Force, marriage agents and performers, legislators, the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, and the Attorney General’s Office, the DOH has worked to create a statewide system to better serve the needs of our island state where as many as 30,000 marriages have taken place in a given year.

The new online system will accommodate anywhere from one to 1,000 applicants at any time.

The online application system was developed and is maintained via the eHawaii.gov program, a largely self-funded public-private partnership between the State of Hawai‘i and Hawai‘i Civil Union and Marriage Information Consortium LLC, a Hawai‘i corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of eGovernment firm NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV).

The eHawaii.gov partnership has allowed Hawai‘i to deploy award-winning applications such as: Hawai‘i Electronic Death Registration System, Hawai‘i Electronic Bench Warrants, Statewide Camping Permits, Hawaii Business Express and Online Motor Vehicle Renewals. Hawai‘i Information Consortium works with Hawai‘i state and county government agencies to enable them to conduct state business online and improve public access to government information.

The DOH monitors health status to identify community health problems and trends. An important part of this work is done by collecting, compiling, and analyzing records of vital events that include all births, deaths, marriages and now civil unions that take place within our state.
