Hawaii Delivers Your Government - Your Way

With the promise of bringing 'Your Government - Your Way,' the State of Hawaii rolled out updates to its website, Hawaii.gov, and launched its newest service - my.hawaii.gov. The new tool is a one-stop shop allowing Hawai’i residents to completely customize how they interact online with the state on any device, anywhere, anytime – securely and reliably.

With a first of its kind approach to the gamification of government, my.hawaii.gov leverages the existing portal architecture and utilizes its Single Sign-On system. The new service integrates with seven of the 17 departments and includes a rich, personalized history of all business conducted online with the state. It also directly integrates with almost 60 of the 100+ online services offered in Hawaii. For highlights of the great new features, visit m.hi.gov/myhi.

My.hawaii.gov features:

  • Access all transaction history with most state and county agencies in one place
  • Get real-time information on filings, licenses and more
  • Single Sign On technology
  • mySavings functionality shows savings of using online service over traditional method
  • Gamification elements provide tips of what users can do with their new-found time
  • Responsive design, touch-first interface

Hawaii.gov continues to bring additional upgrades to the award-winning Hawaii.gov website, including:

  • Advanced search: filters for news, videos, images and related searches
  • Language translation
  • Geolocation mapping service allows visitors to find government offices, EV stations, farmers markets, and more

To help citizens stay connected to their government, we offer 273 social media pages, 1,200+ twitter followers, a flickr photo pool, and 20 YouTube videos. The online services area now includes how-to videos and detailed information pages for each service. Navigation between the 60 mobile apps, 100+ online services, and trending data is easier than ever.

For fun, we've also created the error page of Armageddon - portal.eHawaii.gov/404, a secret konami code, and a changing design based on time of day.

We invite the public to visit the state’s new web portal at http://hawaii.gov and provide feedback at http://portal.eHawaii.gov/feedback.html.

Hawaii.gov and my.hawaii.gov are a joint effort brought to you by the Office of Information Management and Technology (OIMT), Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC (HIC), and Hawaii Information and Communications Services Division (ICSD).
