Vote Count

It's that time of year. Oahu One Credit Union, the Pearl Harbor Federal Credit Union and the Hawaiian Telephone Employees Federal Credit Union conduct their annual election of officers and directors during the months of March and April. There will be some overlapping of our activity, so volunteers for these vote counts should pay special attention to the dates, the hours required, the location of the activity and the type of service we require.

OAHU ONE CREDIT UNION Located at 2219 Pauoa Road, reachable by TheBus #5 or #6, with ample parking on-site.

Begins on Monday, March 7 through Friday, March 11 from 8:30 to 5:00 P.M. This is an on-site election where we will be checking the voter's eligibility and supervising the voting.

Sweaters are recommended, and desk work or reading material would be useful because of the infrequency of voter participation.

Coordinator is Jim Koshi, phone 946-0092.


Here are four locations for these on-site elections:


Tuesday, March 8 and Wednesday, March 9 at the Naval Supply Center at Pearl Harbor from 7:30 A.M. to 4:15 P.M. Arlene Ellis will open the polls each morning at 7:30 so volunteers need not appear until 8:30 or 9:00 A.M. A map t-o the site will be provided by the office.

Volunteers for this activity must pick up special passes to enter Pearl Harbor. These passes should be picked up at the main gate a week before the event.

We will work in pairs, so those volunteers without cars can be transported by her partner -- the office will handle the arrangements for transportation if necessary.

Volunteers will be asked to check on the eligibility of the voters and monitor the voting. Historically, this location has been slow. Ellis will be back by 4:00 P.M. to secure the ballot box, ballots and membership roster.

Lunch costs will be reimbursed by League.
