Today is Election Day, and not only will voters elect a new mayor of Kauai, they’ll also decide on the seven members of the Kauai County Council.
The election season is almost over, with voters heading to the polls Tuesday. That is, unless they already voted. By the end of Thursday, 2,308 voters had cast their ballots during early voting and 44,485 people had registered to vote. Same-day registration will be available Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Hawaii voters will decide whether to convene a Constitutional Convention. Nationwide, 14 states have a periodic Constitutional Convention referendum, with Hawaii being the only state during the mid-term election voting on the measure.
On any given weekday during the lunchtime hour, you’ll find a small, hole in the wall restaurant nestled between the Kauai Bowling Center and another eatery on Rice Street, packed with county and state workers filling their empty stomachs with warm bowls of golden, silky broth.
The sun had just risen Tuesday morning, but that didn’t stop students, staff and faculty from Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School from spreading their message to passerby.
