HONOLULU (AP) - With a polarizing presidential race, an election to replace the late U.S. Rep. Mark Takai and the possibility of an all-Democrat state Senate, Hawaii voters face difficult choices at the polls.
Many are heading to the polls Tuesday to cast their votes. Some are saying they're relieved election season will be over.
Democratic former U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa is hoping to return to her old seat in Congress, which she gave up to run for Senate two years ago. U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, the Democrat who beat Hanabusa in that Senate race, is hoping to return to his Senate seat.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is also running for re-election.
The lone Republican state Senator Sam Slom is facing a challenge from Democrat Stanley Chang.
