Now that we’re headed towards the next big election, we wanted to get a better sense of what parts of Hawaii would be the most likely to back Donald Trump again.
Specifically, which cities have the highest number of conservative voters in the Aloha State?
To do so, we used Saturday Night Science to measure how each city in Hawaii with populations greater than 2,000 voted in past elections. The cities with the highest percentage of voters who voted Republican were named the most conservative cities in the state.
If you’re wondering, Kurtistown is the most liberal city in Hawaii of all those we measured.
And to be clear, we didn’t form this list based on our own biases — we relied on the cold hard data. For more on how we ran the numbers, keep on reading. Then we’ll take a closer look at each of our top 10 most conservative cities in Hawaii.

How we determined the most conservative cities in Hawaii for 2023
To find the most conservative places in Hawaii, we used Saturday Night Science – the argument you’d make at a bar – to find the cities with the most conservatives.
We started by making a list of every city in Hawaii over 2,000 people based on the 2017-2021 American Community Survey. That left us with 95 cities and towns.
- Percentage Of Votes For The Republican President In 2020
Because no voting data exists at the city level, we used county-level election results from the 2020 election. We assigned every city in a county the percentage of votes that went to the Republicans, effectively extending the county’s results to the city level. In cases where larger cities encompassed an entire county, the election outcomes accurately reflected the city’s political landscape.
Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 95 for each criterion, where number one was the most conservative.
The winner, Ahuimanu, is “The Most Conservative City in Hawaii For 2023”. The most liberal place in Hawaii was Kurtistown.
We updated this article for 2023. This report is our tenth time ranking the most conservative places to live in Hawaii.
