City Neighborhood Boards election voting ends Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Friday is the last day to vote in the city's 2011 Neighborhood Boards election.

Online voting and telephone balloting has already generated higher participation rates than the 2009 election, according to election officials.

With a current participation rate of 6.6 percent, executive secretary of the Neighborhood Commission Tom Heinrich said: "We are pleased by the increase in the voter turnout rate and are hoping that our public relations efforts in the final week to get out the vote will push participation even higher."

Election officials estimate that this cost cutting method of voting will save the city close to $85,000 the total cost for the 2011 election.

Voters will need their pass code distributed by the city to voters via mail on May 2.
