The Candidate Advisory Council is taking applications on their website to fill those seats, with terms beginning July 1, 2020.
The advisory council makes recommendations to Gov. David Ige on candidates to fill the seat. The candidates are subject to state Senate confirmation.
The board’s membership was downsized this year from 15 members to 11 members after passage of Act 172, which cut two seats from Oahu as well as several at-large seats.
The board opposed proposals to cut its size in the Hawaii Legislature.
