FEB. 18 DEADLINE FOR NEIGHBORHOOD BOARD CANDIDATES, VOTERS

(Fri., Feb. 4, 2011)—The deadline to submit completed candidate and voter registration forms for Neighborhood Board elections is February 18, 2011, approximately two weeks from now.

Both forms may be downloaded at www.honolulu.gov/nco.  Completed forms must be postmarked by February 18, 2011, or can be hand delivered to the Neighborhood Commission Office at Honolulu Hale, Room 406, by 4:30 p.m. on February 18, 2011.

The 2011 Neighborhood Board elections will be held in April and May of this year. At stake are 439 seats on Oahu’s 33 Neighborhood Boards, whose volunteer members hold monthly meetings and serve as advisors on community concerns.

Oahu residents who voted in the 2010 state elections are pre-registered to vote in the Neighborhood Board elections. Those who did not vote, voted but changed residences since the election, or are non-citizen residents must file a voter registration form in order to vote in the 2011 Neighborhood Board elections.

The Neighborhood Board system was created in 1973 to increase and assure effective citizen participation in government decision-making.

More information on the elections and boards is available at www.honolulu.gov/nco.
