United States presidential election in Hawaii, 2012
The 2012 United States presidential election in Hawaii took place on November 6, 2012 as part of the 2012 General Election in which all 50 states plus The District of Columbia participated. Hawaii voters chose four electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote pitting incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama and his running mate, Vice President Joe Biden, against Republican challenger and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan. Prior to the election, 17 news organizations considered this a state Obama would win, or otherwise considered as a safe blue state. Due to the fact that Hawaii was where Obama was born, he handily won the state's 4 electoral votes by a wide 42.71 percent margin of victory.

- Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan, Republican
