Vote by mail bill moves on at Legislature

HONOLULU — A bill enacting a Vote By Mail pilot program on Kauai for all elections in 2020 passed out of a state Legislature conference committee Friday.

“Vote By Mail will provide more convenience for young people, members of our local military, homebound seniors, and voters in rural areas who may not be able to visit the polls on Election Day,” said Janet Mason, legislative committee co-chair for the League of Women Voters of Hawaii.

The state Office of Elections predicts a cost savings of $750,000 per election cycle if Vote By Mail is implemented statewide. Voters will still be able to vote in person.

    Wait a minute. Why vote? You’re better off leasing your land off $5.25 per square foot per annually. Take that profit and put it into CDs. And roll it over every six months. You can get a tax break by going up and into a higher land valued area when you have the money on hand. Think. Be practical.
