 NEIGHBORHOOD BOARD ELECTION RESULTS RELEASED 

 The Neighborhood Commission Office today released official results of the 2013 Neighborhood Board election and posted them on the commission website: www1.honolulu.gov/nco

               Eligible voters in districts with contested races received pass codes which allowed them to cast ballots via computer or telephone from April 26 to May 17. Election officials estimate that this voting method saved the City close to $80,000 this year.

               The voter participation rate was 8.61 percent, with 15,318 ballots cast.

 Oahuís Neighborhood Board system consists of 33 boards with a total of 439 elective seats. Members are volunteers who help advise all levels of government.

 This election filled 388 seats; no candidates applied for the remaining 51 seats. The boards may appoint qualified residents to fill those vacancies once the new term begins on July 1. The list of vacancies is available on the commission website.
