Polling place.

Mayor Alan Arakawa answers some of the most-asked questions submitted to his staff.

Mr. Mayor,

Q: I saw recently that Eddie Tam is closed for some sort of repairs from now until the Fall. What about voting? Beneath the gym is where everyone in Makawao votes every election year. Is that going to be taken into consideration or will we have to vote somewhere else?

A: Don’t worry, if Eddie Tam is your official polling place then nothing has changed. It’s true that Eddie Tam will be closed from July 30 to October 31 for renovations to the gym and social hall; however, the Parks Department is aware that the Primary Election is on August 11 and they have already asked the contractor to make sure the parking lot is clear for voters and that there are no other obstructions.
