NEIGHBORHOOD BOARD ELECTION PASSCODES MAILED TO VOTERS

 

            The Neighborhood Commission Office today mailed online voting passcodes to 115,000 voters who are eligible to cast ballots in contested races for the 2009-2011 Neighborhood Boards.

These passcodes, along with the last four digits of voters’ social security numbers, will allow them to access and cast their ballots online.

            Joan Manke, Executive Secretary of the Neighborhood Commission Office, said “In 2007 we included an online voting pilot project as part of the election. Based on that success, the City Council requested this election be completely online.”

            The mailer will include a list of three locations where the NCO is placing public computers – Honolulu Hale, Kapolei Hale, and the Windward City Satellite City Hall. Voters who do not have Internet access elsewhere can use these computers to cast ballots.

            Alternatively, voters will be able to cast secure ballots via telephone, using their passcodes and last four digits of their social security number.

The voting period is May 6-May 22. Results of the election will be publicized shortly after the close of the election. The new board members will assume office on July 1.
