Honolulu City Council District 8 candidates Ron Menor and Val Okimoto are neck-in-neck in the crowded primary race for the open seat. Menor is leading Okimoto by just seven more votes.

Neither will amass enough votes to win the seat tonight, but they will face each other again in the Nov. 8 general election along with the rest of the Council seats up for election.

Oahu voters will elect Council members in Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8 in the 2022 election.

Candidates could have won outright in tonight’s primary if they collected 50% of the votes plus one. Since that did not happen the two candidates with the highest vote totals in each race will advance to the general election on Nov. 8.

If there are only two candidates running for a Council seat, which is the case in District 4, they will square off only during the general election.

District 2: Royal Kunia, Wahiawa, along North Shore to Kahaluu

Candidates Matt Weyer and Makuakai Rothman amassed the highest amount of votes in the district and will face off in the general election. Weyer is currently leading the race with 30.63% of the votes.

The other candidates that were in the race were: Chad Tsuneyoshi, Racquel Achiu and Lupe Funaki.

District 6: Downtown through Nuuanu and Kalihi Valley

Candidates Tyler Dos Santos-Tam and Traci Toguchi amassed the highest amount of votes in the district and will face off in the general election. Santos-Tam is currently leading with 33.38% of the votes.

Other candidates were Ikaika Hussey, Nalani Jenkins, Chad Toshiro Wolke, Chance K. Naauao-Ota and Dennis Nakasato.

District 8: Pearl City through Mililani

Candidates Menor and Okimoto amassed the highest amount of votes in the district and will face off in the general election.

Other candidates were Keone Simon, Charmaine Doran and Dion Mesta.
