TWO LANES FRONTING WAIALAE CLOSED BY DOWNED POLE

A car crashed into a power pole near the H-1 onramp between Waialae Avenue and Kapiolani Boulevard, and split a power pole in half. The accident wasn't serious, but HECO crews are now working to replace the pole. It was left dangling by the impact, supported only by wires.

BIG ISLAND ELECTION PROBE
Today, the Hawaii County Council will try to get to the bottom of the problems that disrupted voting on the Big Island on Primary day. As many as 25 of 40 polling sites did not open on time Saturday. Governor Abercrombie had to extend the Big Island's time to vote by more than one-and-a-half hours. Council member Angel Pilago said the Council could recommend terminating County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi, who's in charge of elections. State Senate candidate Lorraine Inouye says the voting problems could have cost her the election. She lost to incumbent Malama Solomon by just 69 votes.
See you on Sunrise!
