The 2019 election results are in for most of the 435 seats on Oahu’s 33 neighborhood boards.

Board members are volunteers who help shape policies and initiatives for all levels of government.

This election, in which voters cast ballots via computer, smartphone or by mail from April 26 through May 17, filled 406 of the seats; the remaining 29 did not have any residents apply as candidates. The board members themselves can fill those vacancies once the new two-year terms begin July 1.

The list of remaining vacancies will be on the Neighborhood Commission Office website.

There were four ties that will be decided by lottery by sometime next week, according to a city statement.

Support local journalism

Studies have shown that when local journalism disappears, government financing costs go up, fewer people run for public office, elected officials become less responsive to their constituents, and voter turnout decreases. Our small nonprofit newsroom works hard every day to present local news in a deep and transparent way, without fear or favor. We also rely on donations from readers like you to keep us afloat. The more support we receive; the stronger, more sustainable our journalism becomes; the more accountable we are to you. Please consider supporting our Honolulu Civil Beat with a tax-deductible gift.
