Double check on campaign activity cancelings due to weather

Many candidates are canceling or rescheduling various activities due to weather conditions.  Please check on the status of activities before heading out to previously scheduled events.

State Senator David Ige issued the following statement in anticipation of storms Iselle and Julio:

“I’ve asked my supporters on the Big Island and Maui to suspend campaign activities. We want them to use this time to make emergency preparations and to take care of themselves and their families. We want to make sure they don’t put themselves in harm’s way.

“I ask that supporters on all islands and everyone in the state to please prepare yourself and stay tuned to local news media for the latest updates and emergency information.”

Storm Cancels Democrats’ Hilo Election Eve Rally

HILO CHAPTER mass sign wavings originally scheduled for Friday, August 8, 2014 at the Kamehameha statue and at the Grand Rally are both canceled.

Democrats have canceled their traditional election eve rally in Hilo because of the approaching storms.

Democratic candidates typically gather at the Mooheau Bandstand in Hilo for a get out the vote (GOTV) event on the night before elections.

Sarah Beamer, the executive director of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, said Hawaii Island Democrats chose to cancel the Friday event due to safety reasons.
