|Elections in Hawaii|
The 1976 United States presidential election in Hawaii took place on November 4, 1976. All fifty states and the District of Columbia were part of the 1976 United States presidential election. Hawaii voters chose four electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.
Hawaii was won by Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter by 2.53 points. It was the only postbellum state won by Carter: since William McKinley in 1896 no other candidate has won the presidency whilst winning so few as one postbellum state. [a] In fact, Carter did not win any other state west of the hundredth meridian, including the Pacific states of Oregon and California admitted before the civil war.
