Voting For Kaneohe Neighborhood Board Seats Will Begin April 28, Run Through May 19

Local residents will select their next Neighborhood Board in an island-wide election that begins later this month.
The election will be held from April 28 through May 19. Eligible voters will receive passcodes that allow them to cast ballots by computer or telephone. Paper ballots will not be used.
Nineteen community members are up for election for the Kaneohe Neighborhood Board. The candidates will contest three at-large positons and seats representing nine sub-districts. No candidate filed for five sub-districts.
A complete list of candidates is available on the Honolulu Neighborhood Commission website (scroll down to the list for District 30). Candidate profiles also are available online.
The Kaneohe Neighborhood Board represents 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. An online map shows the territory covered by District 30. Residents may check an online street index to determine which sub-district includes their street address.

Currently, three seats are unfilled on the Board and have no candidates filed for the election. Those seats represent Sub-District 2 (Crown Terrace); Sub-District 3 (Haiku Village/Plantations); and Sub-District 6 (Waikalua). In addition, no candidate has filed for Sub-District 1 (Ali’I Landing/Ali’I Shores) or Sub-District 5 (Lilipuna/Kahanahou).

The Board members who are elected this spring will be authorized to fill empty seats by appointment after their terms begin July 1.

Island-wide, 437 seats on 33 neighborhood boards are up for election this spring. Additional information about the election, including voter eligibility, is available on the Neighborhood Commission website.
