Hawaii Elections Office Announces Plan for Puna Voting on Friday
U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa is considering legal action in close race with U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz.
An answer to the question “Who won Hawaii’s U.S. Senate race?” is likely to come Friday, according the State Elections Office.
The plan is to run an election at Keonepoko Elementary School for the two Puna precincts on the Big Island that were closed because of Tropical Storm Iselle.
The results would be announced the same evening as the election.
“I don’t think it would take that long with just two precincts,” said Office of Elections spokesman Rex Quidilla.
