About Hawaii County Map
An exceptional feature of Hawaii is that there is no municipal government in the state. All regional administrations are governed at the county level. Honolulu County is the sole unified region in the state of Hawaii and it is a consolidated city-county. It supervises the whole island of Oahu. The Mayor of Hawaii, Mayor of Kauai, Mayor of Maui, and the Mayor of Honolulu function as county executives. They are all voted in unprejudiced contests.
The Hawaiian Islands house five counties that get higher benefits than various other counties in the mainland of the United States. The counties are the sole officially established administrative authorities under that of the state. No official tier of administration (like city governments) is present under that of the county in Hawaii.
All the counties in Hawaii were formed in 1905 from nonunionized provinces, 7 years following the Territory of Hawaii was formed. The Kalawao County is utilized solely as a leper settlement and does not contain majority of the voted bureaucrats like other counties have.
