Get out the vote – Oʻahu

Neighborhood board elections are happening now through May 19

May 2, 2023

Most people would be surprised to learn that in 2021, nine Oʻahu neighborhood board races were decided by 20 votes or less. Four candidates tied, and their races were decided by drawing names from a bag—voting matters.

Civic engagement starts in our own community, in our own neighborhood. More and more Native Hawaiians are stepping up to lead. This year, over 100 Native Hawaiian candidates are running for a seat on their neighborhood boards.

Neighborhood boards allow everyday people to impact issues like land use, water resource management, public safety, and housing.

With over 400 seats up for election, this is the largest single opportunity to choose new leaders in Hawai‘i.

Online voting is underway now and runs through May 19, 2023, 11:59 p.m. HST. Voting is easy and only takes a couple of minutes. Cast your ballot using this link and the pin and passcode that was mailed to you by the neighborhood commission. If you don’t have your pin or passcode, Elections hotline at 808-768-3708

Please visit the Neighborhood Board Commission site for more details.
