The date of the special election for Honolulu’s next mayor is expected to be decided today.

At a meeting this morning, the Honolulu City Council will consider whether to hold the election on the same day as the primary, Sept. 18, or along with the general election on Nov. 2.

The winner-take-all, five-way race will determine who will serve the remaining two years of former Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann’s term. Hannemann resigned to run for governor Tuesday.

Likely candidates include Acting Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Prosecuting Attorney Peter Carlisle, Councilman Donovan Dela Cruz, engineering professor Panos Prevedouros and Councilman Rod Tam.

It’s not clear yet if Tam and Dela Cruz will vote on the resolution to set the election date.
