We’ve been producing journalism in the public interest for 10 years, with the aim of making Hawaii a better place, and we have no plans to stop any time soon. But we need your help to keep this critical work going strong. For a limited time, donations to Civil Beat will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from the NewsMatch program!
Civil Beat has raised $64,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
The governor and lieutenant governor are up for election in 2014. So is one U.S. Senate seat and both of Hawaii’s U.S. House seats.
Every state House seat — all 51 — and 13 of 25 state Senate seats were up for election in 2014. But a number of lawmakers were elected outright in the primary so their names won’t be on the general election ballot.
A number of local races also were decided in the primary but two Honolulu City Council districts will face a run-off on Nov. 4. That’s also the case for several seats in Maui, Kauai and Hawaii counties, and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs board of trustees.
Here’s a list of the seats — and candidates who are moving on to the general election. Highlighted links will take you to the candidate’s responses to a Civil Beat questionnaire.
Check back frequently: We’ll be updating this page to include links to information on candidates and where they stand on important issues. Many candidates responded before the primary and we’ll again seek responses from those who didn’t but are still in the race.
