State elections officials will find a way to get absentee ballots to voters in two Hawaii Island precincts that will not open on Saturday in the primary because of storm damage in the Puna region.

The primary election will otherwise go on as planned, but there could be some suspense afterward if campaigns are close.

The two precincts -- Hawaii Paradise Community Center (HD4-01) and Keonepoko Elementary School (HD4-02) -- are in state Rep. Faye Hanohano's district. Voters in the precincts who have already cast ballots by mail or walk-in voting will have their votes counted with the rest on Saturday. Several thousand other voters will be given more time once they receive absentee ballots.

Hanohano, who was chastised by House leaders after accusations of racially discriminatory and inappropriate conduct, is facing four challengers in the Democratic primary.

But Hanohano may not be the only candidate wondering about the outcome after Saturday night.
