Highlights of Hawaii 2012 primary election

And an envelope for the Hawaii 2012 primary election. A mixture of old and new faces is mounted at the forefront of the political scene in the State. This is what analysts call the most exciting election of Hawaii as places to win year and issues such as the rail of steel on steel continuous things heat place in the community.

Here are the winners for the 2012 primary election candidates:

Mayor of HONOLULU: Benjamin Cayetano (90 944 votes / 44.73%)BIG Island Mayor: Billy Kenoi (18 390 votes / 43.15%)U.S. Senate (D): Mazie Hirono (134 724 votes / 57.67%)U.S. Senate (R): Linda Lingle (44 245 votes / House dist 91.63%)U.S. 2 (D): Tulsi Gabbard (62 869 votes / 55.08%)))))

Hawaii Election

Former Governor Ben Cayetano has led to the election of the first printing of voting, with about 45 per cent; former City Managing Director Kirk Caldwell was right behind him with approximately 30% and Mayor Peter Carlisle to 25 per cent. This means Cayetano will face in the general election of November Caldwell because he does not vote the majority of 50% required for a total victory.

Announcement of Senator Daniel Akaka that he would retire after 22 years in the Senate opens a contest for the empty seat. A political analyst on Hawaii News now noted on the scarcity of this situation, which may occur only once in every generation.

Also an unusual event during the election, Governor Neil Abercrombie issued a proclamation ordering all Big Island polling stations remain open until 19: 30 instead of the usual 18 approximately 25 sites it has not open time today, causing the extension of time. A similar proclamation had been issued in 1996 by then-Governor Cayetano due to heavy rains. Proclamation of today, in turn, led to a delay in the printout of Big Island. Face current Mayor Billy Kenoi and former-Mayor Harry Kim to another General, as election Kenoi are not the majority of the votes of 50%.

If visitors elected Hawaii realize it or not, these figures have an enormous impact on what will be their next vacation in the Islands. For example, the path of iron. It is one of the decisive issues in the process of election of this year. Cayetano is anti-rail, while Caldwell campaign pushes the slogan, "Building Rail." more The rail will result in less traffic on the roads and an easier way for tourists to explore the Islands? Or is it mutilate these views of famous Hawaii postal card with its decor of concrete slab? We just see what fate awaits the Islands in the months and the years.
