Get ready to vote for your 2021-2023 Oʻahu Neighborhood Board members!
The island-wide, completely online election begins on April 23 and ends on May 21. If you are a registered voter, you will receive a passcode in the mail which will allow you to vote online. (LINK: Honolulu Neighborhood Board Election FAQs)
Online voting is simple and easy to do and will take just a few minutes to complete. To learn about your candidates, visit the Candidate Profiles page and select your district.
There are 33 Neighborhood Boards on Oʻahu that meet monthly and serve as the first line of support and information for residents with community concerns. It is also a mechanism to empower everyday people to make an impact on important issues facing our community: land use, public safety, infrastructure and development, public health, and water and natural resources planning, to name a few.
Native Hawaiian representation is needed at every level and in every aspect of government and decision-making in Hawaiʻi. We need to advocate for our ʻāina, culture, and Kānaka, and electing the best representatives for each neighborhood can support that.
Go to www2.honolulu.gov/nbe to select your next neighborhood board representatives.
Be sure to vote early but before you do, use the online “candidate profile” tool to learn more about the people who will be making decisions in your neighborhood for the next two years.
