Hawaii is now added to the Secretary of State API

Hawaii Secretary of State – https://hbe.ehawaii.gov/documents/search.html

This is a split approach with Hawaii. When we search for business by business name, we use Puppeteer to handle the form submission. This is a lot slower (~10 seconds).

When we search by Secretary of State id (Filing Number in Hawaii) then we use fetch. Fetch takes about two seconds.

Hawaii does show the captcha symbol on their website but I didn’t run into it with Puppeteer or fetch. It’s something for which we will be watching.
