At its next meeting scheduled for Thursday at 9 a.m. the Maui Charter Commission will continue its discussion on Theme A, County Council Districting and Elections, among other things.

At the upcoming meeting Commissioners will consider whether to adopt ranked-choice voting as the electoral system for council elections.

The Charter Commission is evaluating substantial changes to our county’s Charter, and at its last meeting voted to propose a Charter amendment to create three voter districts within the County.

At the upcoming meeting Commissioners will consider whether to adopt ranked-choice voting as the electoral system for council elections. A ranked-choice voting system is one in which voters may rank candidates by preference on their ballots, a significant change from our current system whereby voters may only vote for one candidate in each race.

The Charter Commission wants to hear your thoughts on these, and other, important topics concerning Maui County government. To offer your recommendations visit mauichartersurvey.org .
