Surrounded entirely by the Pacific Ocean, the state of Hawaii is a volcanic island chain comprised of eight “main” islands. As the last state to join the Union and one of only two U.S. states that do not observe daylight savings time, Hawaii’s capital is Honolulu located on the island of O’ahu, also known as “the Big Island.” The state government of Hawaii is modeled after the federal government with adaptations originating from the kingdom era of Hawaiian history. As codified in the Constitution of Hawaii, there are three branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial. Currently, Hawaii has two Democratic members of the U.S. Senate, two Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 51 members of the Hawaii House of Representatives and 25 members of the Hawaii State Senate. As of September 2013, Hawaii is one of 13 Democratic state government trifectas.
