Honolulu League is working to give as many citizens as possible easy access to voter registration as part of its "Get Out The Vote" program this election year. Of particular interest is registering those residents who are "housebound" and would normally have difficulty participating in the voting process. To this end, members residing in or living near condos and apartment houses will be deputized to register people in the buildings. Permission is being sought from the Board of each building to set up a voter registration table in the lobby staffed by representatives of the League. The effort will take one or two days depending on the number of residents in the building, and take place generally from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. during the month of July, to coincide with mail delivery.
Condos slated for the registration drive to date include: 1717 Ala Wai, Aloha Towers, Arcadia, Banyan Tree Plaza, Diamond Head Vista, Hale Kulanui, Honolulu Tower, Kaimuki Jade, 1040 Kinau, One Kalakaua, Makiki Royal, Napali Gardens, Park View, Pohai Nani, Prospect Tower, Queen Emma Gardens, Waipuna, and Woodrose. If you would like to register people in your building, please contact Arlene Ellis at the League office in Honolulu.
Candidates in Focus
This project assists candidates in reaching the public via 'Olelo, the public access television stations, from mid-August through October. Volunteers who are coordinating this effort are Pearl Johnson, Kay Linn and Joanne Green.
Honolulu League is in the process of negotiating with local television stations to set up debates in two races: Gubernatorial and the First Congressional District. Tentative plans for the Governor's race are Republicans Lingle and Fasi before the Primary Election and the winner vs. Governor Cayetano before the General Election. For the Congressional seat, Republicans Kawananakoa and Ward in the Primary, and winners of their respective primaries for the General.
