Local Leagues - Honolulu

The Honolulu chapter has prepared a voters guide to the City Council races. The September 21 primary election (in the future as this is being written) is extremely important because a council member can be elected outright at this time by obtaining only a majority of the votes cast. [Editor's note: Romy Cachola and Ann Kobayashi were so elected, as was Gary Okino who was unopposed.]

Four questions were sent to every candidate. Their responses to these questions are quite revealing and can provide real help in deciding whom to vote for. Anna Hoover, the editor of the Aloha Voter, did almost all the work on this project. The guide was mailed to Honolulu Leaguers in September.

The other big election project for Honolulu is the Democracy Net, which merits it own story (see page 1). We also helped Olelo Public Access Television with "Candidates in Focus," which taped 160 candidates who will get up to 7 minutes of free air time during September.
