Oahu residents can file for candidacy for neighborhood board elections starting NOW and running through February 17, 2023.

Board terms will run from 2023 through 2025.

The Neighborhood Board program is the only government-supported civic engagement system in Hawaii. Oahu’s Neighborhood Board System was created in 1973 to assure and increase community participation in the decision-making process of government. The system applies the concept of participatory democracy, involving communities in the decisions that affect them. It establishes an island-wide network of elected neighborhood boards as communication channels, expanding and facilitating opportunities for community and government interaction.  

To register to be a candidate in the 2023 neighborhood board election, visit www2.honolulu.gov/nbe or call 768-3710 to request a registration form. Registration forms can also be found on the Neighborhood Commission Office website. 

The 2023 Neighborhood Board Election will be held online. The website will not be activated until the voting period begins on April 28, 2023 and concludes on May 19, 2023.
