How do those vote that don’t have electronic means?

Beginning April 24, 2015, there will be three walk-in voting sites at Honolulu, Kapolei, and Hauula where people may use City computers to access their electronic ballot online. An automated phone system will be available as well and voters may access their digital ballot by calling the number to be provided at the beginning of the voting period. The electronic ballot passcode and instructions will be mailed to all eligible voters.

What function does a Neighborhood Board serve, and what are board members' duties?

The Neighborhood Plan contains rules for the board system, and includes this section:

    §2-13-102  General powers, duties, and functions of the boards.

(a)  The boards are responsible for actively participating in the functions and processes of government by identifying, addressing, communicating, and seeking solutions to neighborhood issues and concerns, both within and outside of their respective neighborhood areas.  Their actions should reflect the needs, wants, and interests of the neighborhood.  Boards may take the initiative in selecting and prioritizing their activities, and provide reasonable means to increase and assure effective citizen participation in the decisions of government.

(b)  The powers, duties, and functions of boards shall include:

     (1) Increase and assure effective citizen participation in the decisions of government by providing additional and improved opportunities for public input and interaction, and communicating that input to the appropriate persons and agencies;

     (2) Initiate, review, comment, and make recommendations concerning any general plan, development and sustainable communities plan, zoning, planning, permitting, and other land use issues within the city;

     (3) Identify, prioritize, review, comment, and make recommendations concerning any government capital improvement proposal, plan, or project;

     (4) Assist with evaluations of the efficiency and effectiveness of government services and programs, whether provided by government agencies or their contractors;

     (5) Initiate, review, comment, and make recommendations concerning any other substantive issue reasonably related to the processes or decisions of government;

     (6) Encourage understanding of the decision-making processes of government; and

     (7) Encourage the role of the board as a public and informational forum on community and governmental issues.

(c)  Boards, in compliance with this plan and all other applicable laws, may communicate and cooperate with each other, especially on a regional basis, to promote general awareness and understanding of issues of mutual concern, explore opportunities for collaboration, and foster beneficial relationships to further increase and assure effective citizen  participation in the decisions of government.

(d)  Each board may express its neighborhood's view, opinion, or advice on matters within the scope of the board's jurisdiction to properly fulfill its duty.  No deference is required of a board to any other board.

(e)  Boards may cooperate and collaborate with persons, agencies, and community organizations so long as the cooperation and collaboration does not exceed the powers, duties, and functions of boards as allowed by law.

(f)  The commission shall provide reasonable assistance and reasonable operating expenses for the boards for the performance of their powers, duties, and functions.
