State aiming for timely results
In Hawai'i, officials are optimistic the general election will go smoothly.
Though there is still a shortage of poll workers, officials stress every precinct has supervisory chairs who have been instructed on what they need to do when polls close. And a company that supplies electronic voting machines to the state has said kinks that occurred in the primary election won't happen again on Nov. 7.
"We're very confident," Neil McClure, vice president of Hart InterCivic, told The Advertiser last week. "We had great success in 2004 in doing this, and we expect to repeat that performance with timely results, as expected by the public."
