Hawaii County League published a voter information pamphlet containing pictures and information on candidates for State and Hawaii County offices. Also included were candidates for U.S. Senate and House seats.

With a whole page devoted to each of 56 candidates (the few who did not respond were left out), this was quite an expensive undertaking and distribution was limited. However, the information in the pamphlet was included in the County website, www.co-hawaii.hi.us, thanks to Hawaii County Clerk, Al Konishi.

The information will have been updated for the General Election, and copies of the pamphlet sent to libraries and voter areas. Kudos to Marian Wilkins, Hawaii County League president, Virginia Isbell who envisioned and started the work on the pamphlet, Sue Irvine who arranged for the inclusion on the County website, and all of the League members who worked so diligently to see the project through.

The Hilo unit helped organize (with AAUW) two candidate forums for the primary election. The forum for the mayoral race attracted more than 350 people which must be a record. KPUA, a Hilo radio station, helped promote it and also broadcast the whole forum. They also had a very successful forum for the race for prosecuting attorney.
