The League of Women Voters of Hawaii announces the launch of a nonpartisan election resource about candidates, http://www.lwv-hawaii.com/candidates-2016.htm. Candidate information is available for all counties in Hawaii. Nearly three hundred candidates were contacted by the League.
This “one-stop shop” for candidate information provides simple tools to help Hawaii voters compare and contrast different candidates. Detailed candidate information, including candidates’ contact information and a statement from candidates about their background and qualifications, is available for offices at the county, state and national levels.
The LWV urges people to become familiar with the candidates and to vote in the primary Aug. 13. The League’s database will be updated to reflect winners of the primary election, so that information continues to be available for the general election on November 8, 2016.
For additional information about online voter registration, location of your polling place, and important voting procedures, the State Office of Elections provides an online guide to voting in Hawaii: http://elections.hawaii.gov/voters/voting-in-hawaii-guide/
The League of Women Voters of Hawaii is a non-partisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
