Information Available About Competing And Voting In 2017 Neighborhood Board Elections

From our friends at the Honolulu Neighborhood Commission:
The 2017 Neighborhood Board elections are fast approaching. Any Oahu resident who will be at least 18 years of age by February 17, 2017 is eligible to be a candidate. Residents may find out what neighborhood board serves their area by searching through the street index posted on or by calling 768-3710. 

If you have voted in the 2016 primary or general election, you are automatically eligible to vote in the 2017 Neighborhood Board elections. Otherwise, you can register for the Neighborhood Board elections by submitting a NB voter registration form to the NCO. The NB voter registration form, along with the candidate registration form, will be available at beginning Thursday, December 1, 2016. 

The Kaneohe Neighborhood Board is District 30 in the Neighborhood Commission classification system. The Board is made up of three at-large seats and 14 seats serving specific sub-districts. To find out what sub-district you live in, visit our online map and street index.

We currently have three open Board seats, whose terms run through June 2017. They represent Sub-District 6, Waikalua; Sub-District 8, Kapunahala; and Sub-District 12, Pikoiloa. The Board is authorized to fill vacancies by appointment. Community members may indicate their interest by contacting Board Chairman Mo Radke or by attending a Board meeting.
