Hawaiʻi does not have a Secretary of State, so the Lieutenant Governor is responsible for these duties, playing a pivotal role in the state’s administrative processes. Tasked with managing functions like name changes, the Lieutenant Governor ensures a streamlined process for individuals seeking such modifications.

Additionally, the Lieutenant Governor’s responsibilities extend to handling apostilles and certifications. This involves authenticating documents for international use, such as birth certificates, diplomas, and divorce decrees.

The Lieutenant Governor also oversees administrative rules, playing a key role in implementing regulations that govern various aspects of state operations.
