Informed Voters are the Best Voters: Details on the Coming Hawaii Election

article top
BY JAMIE STORY – With election day less than two weeks away, and walk-in voting starting earlier this week, I want to make sure you’re aware of all the tools that the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii and other like-minded organizations have made available to help you become as informed a voter as possible.

Below are links to website tools, scorecards, and articles from the Grassroot Institute, Hawaii Reporter and Smart Business Hawaii, which may help you learn more about the candidates and the issues. Please note that the articles do not necessarily reflect official stances of the Grassroot Institute, but are all valuable perspectives to consider.

I hope you’ll find this information useful as you prepare to head to the ballot box. If you’ve already voted (or even if not!), please feel welcome to forward these resources to your friends and family.
