Voter Service Committee Plans Forums for September

League will co-sponsor a series of Candidate Forums with Hawaii Public Radio on KHPR, FM 88.1. The first will be between mayoral candidates Duke Bainum and Mufi Hannemann, scheduled for September 1, between 5 and 6 pm, before a live audience who will submit questions to the candidates. League member Janet Mason will moderate. The studio audience will be solicited by Hawaii Public Radio on a first-come, first-served basis.

The second forum will be the prosecutorial race between Peter Carlisle and Keith Kaneshiro, scheduled for September 8, from 4:30 to 6 pm. The setup will be the same.

A General election forum will be determined by the outcome of the Primary election on September 18.

VOTER REGISTRATION

I LOVE KAILUA" Sunday, April 18, was the first community function where League participated all day registering voters. Roxie Berlin, Mitzie Bernson (with the help of husband Lionel), Lisa Carter (assisted by her two boys) and Piilani Kaopuiki , with Arlene Ellis acting as "cheer Leader", were kept busy continuously as people asked pertinent questions, registered to vote, or took forms home to register their spouses, etc.

Lyons Arboretum Plant Sale at Blaisdell Auditorium on Saturday, July 17, was the scene of another successful registration effort at a community function. The registration site was festooned with red, white and blue balloons, and frequent reminders to register to vote blared over the P.A. system, keeping Mitzie Bernson, Betty Goodwin, Malia Schwartz and Lois Tyler busy at the League table.

Unity Church at Diamond Head on July 30, at the peculiar hours of 7:30 to 10 pm, was the location of League's registration effort, ably staffed by Evangeline Funk and Piilani Kaopuiki.

WOMEN'S Equality Day at Schofield Barracks on Saturday, August 28, will be coordinated by Malia Schwartz, who take her entourage to Schofield at SIX A.M.! I Call Malia if you're willing to help. Good Luck!

Thank you, volunteers!
