Pro-Telescope Voter Guide
By Samuel Wilder King II @ 6:33 PM :: 2192 Views :: Hawaii County , Greenmail, Office of Elections, OHA

'Ai Noa!

Aloha,    August, 2020

Here is the Imua TMT's latest voter guide. We have compiled a list of candidates and many of their stances on the TMT. This is the best information we could gather on the candidates.

Common Ballot Mistakes from Tim Richards’ campaign:

  1. Look at both sides of the ballot – front and back!

  2. Vote only in ONE party

  3. SIGN YOUR BALLOT

  4. Return ballot by mail by August 3 OR return to a Voter Service Center by August 8, 7pm

* = incumbent

"?" or blank next to name means we could not find out what their stance is
