SLIDESHOW: Hawaii Primary Election 2012

Brian Tseng for Civil Beat

Civil Beat sent photographers out to capture scenes from Hawaii's Aug. 11 primary election.

It was one of the hottest elections in years with a U.S. Senate seat at stake, a three-way mayoral race that would decide a $5.26 billion Honolulu rail project and a contested congressional district.

DISCUSSION: What'd you think of the primary election?

Have feedback? Suggestions?
