HONOLULU — Honolulu is hiring a company called Everyone Counts to help it run this year's neighborhood board elections.

Voters will be able to cast their ballots online. Those without internet access will be able to vote via telephone or at Honolulu Hale and Kapolei Hale.

The city said Tuesday it is working with Everyone Counts to create and distribute individual passcodes to voters via mail. Voters will be mailed a secure passcode around next Tuesday, the day voting begins.

Ballots may be cast starting Tuesday at 12 a.m. through May 20 at 11:59 p.m.

The digital ballot may be found at the Neighborhood Commission's website.

Everyone Counts says votes are securely cast and counted through the use of military-grade encryption technology.
