The Nation

December 29, 1985

Voters in three of Honolulu's nine City Council districts cast ballots in a special election to fill seats left vacant by the recall of three veteran councilmen who had switched to the Republican Party. Officials forecast a poor turnout because of football games, including the Aloha Bowl in the city, and voter apathy resulting from a long legal fight over the election. On Oct. 5, 62.6% of the 78,641 registered voters in the three districts voted to recall Councilmen George Akahane, Toraki Matsumoto and Rudy Pacarro, who in June surprised their predominantly Democratic constituents by switching parties.
