Neighborhood Board Elections

Process to Begin for '91 Elections

The week of November 12, 1990 will begin the drive for Neighborhood Board candidates and voter registration for the March 1991 Neighborhood elections.

All Oahu residents, military personnel and their dependents, and legal resident aliens who are at least 18 years old by January 15, 1991 are encouraged to become a Neighborhood Board candidate in their neighborhood and/or to register to vote, if necessary.

Those who voted in the 1990 General Election will be automatically qualified to vote at their 1990 address. If they have moved, they must register again with the Neighborhood Commission Office in order to participate.

Candidacy and voter registration forms should be delivered to the Neighborhood Commission office at City Hall or postmarked by January 15, 1991.

The first Neighborhood Boards on Oahu were formed in 1975. Currently there are 30 Boards whose main purpose is to assure and increase community participation in the decision-making process of government. Neighborhood Board members are volunteers, and their Neighborhood Boards serve in an advisory role to all levels of government.

For more information, call the Neighborhood Board Election Hotline at 527-5579.
