Kawauchi said “It is important for local government to reach out to the people that we serve and offer services and information in their home districts and communities. This county-wide voter registration/voter education initiative will provide information and answer questions about election administration and operations and election-day activities. I encourage members of the public to join us at these sessions held around the island.”

Acting Program Administrator Arlene Boteilho said “The Elections Division appreciates the opportunity to bring this important information and these activities to your community.
