Hawaii votes in between storms

Hawaii, rushing to clean up debris from one tropical storm and with only a day to prepare for a hurricane on its way, is aiming to squeeze in a primary election vote this weekend.

Voters are deciding a Democratic primary contest between Governor Neil Abercrombie and state Senator David Ige, who has surged ahead in the polls despite raising less campaign cash. All but two polling stations on the east coast of Big Island, hardest hit by Tropical Storm Iselle, will be open. There is still uncertainty over the pathway of the approaching Hurricane Julio.
