Neigh­bor­hood boards now con­duct “In­ter­net-only” elec­tions, and that’s what lies ahead — April 24 to May 15 — for all res­i­dents who want a voice at the grass-roots level.

Oahu’s 33 boards meet monthly to ad­dress area is­sues and con­cerns in dia­logue with or­ga­ni­za­tions, law­mak­ers and gov­ern­ment.

There are 575 can­di­dates will­ing to rep­re­sent their neigh­bors in 2015-2016. Elec­tions are held ev­ery two years, in odd-num­bered years.

Vot­ers will be mailed a pass­code April 23 to ac­cess the on­line bal­lot. Walk-in sit es will be open in Honolulu, Kapolei and Hau­ula for those with­out their own com­puter links.

East Oahu has five boards.
