Local Nonprofit Hopes to Get Out the Vote
In the last presidential election, Hawaii’s voter turnout was the worst in the nation.
This concerns James Koshiba, the Executive Director of Kanu Hawaii. He wants to bring the people’s voice back into politics. His project, HawaiiCandidates.info, seeks to re-engage the community and increase voter turnout.
Thanks to a largely volunteer effort, Koshiba was able to reach people in communities with historically low voter turnout. Koshiba’s approach was to listen and ask the community what was important to them.
To learn more about the project HawaiiCandidates.info, visit www.kanuhawaii.org.
