The state will have a new governor, after Neil Abercrombie was defeated in the Democratic primary by Senator David Ige.

The concession was made early in the evening on Saturday when more than 60,000 votes separated the two after just the third printout.

Ige ended up with 66% of the vote, 82,000 votes ahead of Abercrombie. He will face Republican challenger Duke Aiona and Independent candidate Mufi Hannemann in the General Election.

Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui of Maui also celebrated a win over long-time politician Clayton Hee for the Democratic nomination. He ended up with more than 50% of the vote.

The closest race of the night was for US Senate, which remains undecided due to the outstanding votes from two polling places on Hawaiʻi Island that were unable to open because of the aftermath of Hurricane Iselle.

The vote count so far is Brian Schatz over Colleen Hanabusa by a slim margin of just 1,635 votes.

The state office of elections faces a deadline of about three weeks to get ballots to the affected residents, and have the votes tallied for a final vote count.

(Update: 3:15 a.m. 8/10/2014)

A final printout issued by the State Office of Election shows Brian Schatz with a 1,635 vote lead over challenger Colleen Hanabusa for the democratic nomination. With all precincts accounted for at 3:15 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 10, Schatz has a final vote count of 113,800 (48.5%) compared to Hanabusa’s 112,165 (47.8%) vote.

The count does not include two polling places in Puna that were affected by Hurricane Iselle. Elections officials say they must still get ballots to affected residents that would have voted at polling places at the Hawaiʻi Paradise Community Center and Keoneopoko Elementary School, a process that could take as long as three weeks.

The lead closed a bit after the fifth printout at 10:53 p.m., when Brian Schatz had a 1,788 vote lead on Hanabusa with a total of 105,798 (48.6%) compared to Hanabusa’s 104,010 (47.8%). Both are vying for the democratic nomination for the US Senate. Shatz pulled ahead of Hanabusa after the third printout when it was 101,481 to 99,602 with three outstanding precincts. Prior to that, just 11 votes separated the two candidates.

In the race for lieutenant governor, Clayton Hee conceded to Shan Tsutsui of Maui for the Democratic nomination following the fourth printout.

Earlier this evening, Governor Neil Abercrombie conceded to fellow democratic gubernatorial candidate David Ige, who was more than 60,000 votes ahead after the third printout at 8:53 p.m. The vote count represented absentee votes, and just 165 out of the 245 precincts in the state.

Outstanding are the votes from two polling places on Hawaiʻi Island that were unable to open on Saturday because of the aftermath of Hurricane Iselle.
