Vox populā‘ie » Honolulu Weekly:

How one Lāi‘e woman’s devotion to the Kahuku Public Library may have changed an election

It’s a wonder that the neighborhood board elections took place at all this spring. When the City cut the budget for paper ballots just three weeks before the elections, city officials celebrated it as a forward-thinking move, touting the fact that Honolulu was to be the first municipality in the U.S. to conduct an election entirely by electronic and telephone ballots.

Meantime, the Neighborhood Commission had to find a way to make online and telephone voting possible in a three-week period, and then find a way to let people know about it.
