Apply Now To Run For Neighborhood Boards
If you want to make a difference in your community, here’s a good way to start.
Oahu residents who are at least 18 years old or will be by Feb. 20, 2015, can file to run for a seat on their respective neighborhood board.
Candidates can apply online at honolulu.gov/nco. Registration forms also are available at the City and County of Honolulu Neighborhood Commission Office at Honolulu Hale, Room 406, or by calling 768-3717. Deadline to apply is Feb. 20, 2015, and mailed forms must be postmarked by that date. It also is the deadline to register to vote in the neighborhood board elections; residents who voted in either the primary or the general election automatically are registered.
Voting begins April 21 and ends May 15. Each member serves a two-year term.
The Neighborhood Board System is the only government-sponsored civic engagement system in the state.
