Cast Vote Online For Neighborhood Board
Neighborhood boards have been around on the island long enough to now conduct “Internet-only” elections, and that’s what lies ahead.
Voting will run from April 24 to May 15 for all community-minded residents who have computers and want a voice in local politics at the grassroots level.
Oahu’s 33 boards meet monthly to identify and address area issues and concerns in a sometimes-lively dialogue between residents, organizations, lawmakers and government staff.
There are 575 candidates willing to represent their neighbors in 2015-2016. Elections are held every two years, in odd-numbered years.
Voters will be mailed a passcode April 23 giving them access to the online ballot. Walk-in sites will be open in Honolulu, Kapolei and Hau‘ula for those without their own computer access.
Central Oahu has four boards. The Mililani-Waipio-Melemanu board is fielding 23 candidates for its four subdistricts; Mililani Mauka-Launani has eight candidates for one sub-district; Wahiawa-Whitmore Village has 15 candidates for one sub-district; and North Shore has 23 candidates for five subdistricts.
