With absentee ballots in mailboxes now, and walk in voting starting October 23, Hawaii County voters must make up their minds about for whom they wish to vote–and how they want to vote on the issues.
Right here at www.bigislandnewscenter.com, down on the right, voters may listen to several thirty-minute interviews that will help them get the information they need to decide.
The available interviews:
Lincoln Ashida and Mitch Roth, two separate interviews with the candidates for County Prosecutor. These interviews were recorded prior to the Primary Election.
Interview with Donna Oba and Sue Dursin of the League of Women Voters, giving the pros and cons of each of the two State Constitutional Amendments and six County Charter Amendments on which we will vote. Most voters automatically vote “yes” on such issues, but Donna and Sue explain their organization has thoroughly reviewed the issues…and you may wish to listen to them so you can make an informed decision. Some of these items may warrant a “no” vote–that’s for the voter to decide.
-Mayor Candidate Harry Kim
-Mayor Candidate Billy Kenoi
-County Council 1 candidates Chelsea Yagong and Valerie Poindexter, together. This interview will be on the radio on Sunday, October 28, but with voting open now we decided to post it sooner at this web site.
Walk in voting starts Tuesday, October 23, and goes through Saturday, November 3. Any registered voter may vote at any of the three locations–Waimea Community Center, Aupuni Center Conference Room, or West Hawaii Civic Center. The three locations are open 8 a.m. til 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
