Hawaii House of Representatives

The Hawaii House of Representatives (Hale o nā Luna Maka‘āinana) is the lower house of the Hawaii State Legislature. Pursuant to Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of Hawaii, amended during the 1978 constitutional convention, the House of Representatives consists of 51 members representing an equal number of districts across the islands. It is led by the Speaker of the House elected from the membership of the House, with majority and minority leaders elected from their party's respective caucuses. The current Speaker of the House is Scott Saiki.

Legislators are elected to two-year terms and are not subject to term limits. As in many state legislatures in the United States, the Hawaiʻi House of Representatives is a part-time body and legislators often have active careers outside government. The upper house of the legislature is the Hawaii State Senate.

According to Article III, section 4 of the Hawaii State Constitution, a legislator's term begins on the day of the general election and ends the day of the general election if a new member is elected.[1]

The last election took place on November 8, 2022.
