Delayed Voting Could Sink Hanohano

KITV: With five Democrats challenging controversial state Rep. Faye Hanohano, releasing results before all voters have made up their minds could influence which candidate makes it to November's general election.

About 8,000 voters are registered there, and anyone who did not vote early by mail or in person will be given an absentee ballot somehow after Saturday, and will be given until an undetermined time to vote — by state law no more than 21 days.

According to Louie, the postponement will not affect the reporting, the tabulation and the distribution of the results from the rest of the state. Results will be announced as planned Saturday night....
