557 Candidates Register for Honolulu Neighborhood Board Elections

From Honolulu NCO

A total of 557 candidates registered for the 2019 Neighborhood Board Elections, a major improvement from the previous election cycle and the second highest number of registered candidates in NCO's history.

O'ahu residents at least 18 years of age by February 15 were qualified to register and become a candidate, including military personnel, military family members, and legal resident aliens.

The registered candidates will compete for the 2019-2021 Neighborhood Board term, with balloting taking place completely online from Friday, April 26 through Friday, May 17.

As the period to cast ballots approaches, registered voters will receive a passcode in the mail to access their ballot online here. However, voters residing in an uncontested race area will not receive a passcode.

Voting sites will be available at Kapolei Hale, Kapalama Hale Suite 160, KEY Project in Kahalu’u from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Mondays through Fridays), and any public library on O'ahu as part of the Hawai'i State Public Library System. To receive a paper ballot, please call NCO at 768-3710.

The Neighborhood Board System was established in 1973 by former Mayor Frank Fasi as a way to engage communities throughout O'ahu, and includes 437 volunteers who serve on 33 Neighborhood Boards. Moped registration and vehicle safety checks are just two examples of legislation that was spearheaded by neighborhood boards.
