Hawaii is one of nine states along with the District of Columbia to not have school bond and tax elections. The Hawaii Constitution has a mandated bond issue law in which the Hawaii Legislature approves bond issues for school districts for both public and private schools. The Constitutional requirement also mandates that school districts that use special purpose revenue bonds. Under the requirement, the issuer enters into a contract with the seller of the bonds in which they promise to make a good faith effort to pay down the interest and principal of the bonds.

In Kaua'i County, a Charter Review Commission is responsible for referring proposed county charter changes to the ballot. When charter amendments do appear on the ballot, a simple majority is sufficient for approval.[1]
