Now that we’re in full election swing to decide not only our next President, but many other local statewide initiatives, it’s important to put into context the types of decisions that will be made this year. Who makes the decisions? Not the people getting elected. It’s the voters.

How we determined the most liberal cities in Hawaii
We started by making a list of every place in Hawaii over 5,000 people based on the 2014 American Community Survey that aren’t ‘CDPs’. That left us with more than 50 places in Hawaii.
We then measured the voting record and census data to determine which cities lean the most leftward in their allegiances. Basically, what percentage of a city voted liberal in the 2012 elecetion?
Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 50, and the winner is ‘The Most Liberal City in Hawaii.’
