Going Online To Elect Neighborhood Boards

Neighborhood boards now conduct “Internet-only” elections, and that’s what lies ahead — April 24 to May 15 — for all residents who want a voice at the grass-roots level.

Oahu’s 33 boards meet monthly to address area issues and concerns in dialogue with organizations, lawmakers and government.

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 to access the online ballot. Walk-in sites will be open in Honolulu, Kapolei and Hauula for those without their own computer links.

East Oahu has five boards.

Palolo is fielding 15 candidates for its four subdistricts; Diamond Head-Kapahulu-St. Louis Heights has nine candidates for three sub-districts; Kaimuki has 14 candidates for three sub-districts; Waialae-Kahala has 12 candidates for four subdistricts; Kuliouou-Kalani Iki has 15 candidates for eight subdistricts; and Hawaii Kai has 22 candidates for 11 subdistricts.
