Hawaii Makeup Election Will Go Forward Friday

(Hilo, HI) -- Makeup voting in Hawaii's Democratic Senate primary will go forward today, despite opposition from one of the candidates. Deputy Attorney General John Molay says Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa shouldn't have ever brought her request to delay the election to court.
A Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that voting could be held in two precincts that were shut down last Saturday due to Tropical Storm Iselle. Hanabusa had gone to court asking for the voting to be delayed until residents in the precinct were fully recovered from the storm. Hanabusa trails U.S. Senator Brian Schatz by about 16-hundred votes in the Democratic primary for Schatz's seat.
