Hawaii Election 2012: Presidential & Senate Races Make Waves (LIVE UPDATES)

In the Hawaii election on Tuesday, Barack Obama is expected to easily secure the 4 electoral votes up for grabs in the state where he was born over Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

The presidential race, however, isn't the only contest in Hawaii likely to make waves on a national level on Decision Day. Voters in the Aloha State will also cast ballots in the Senate race to replace outgoing Democratic Sen. Daniel Akaka. Democratic hopeful Mazie Hirono is favored to win over Republican contender former Gov. Linda Lingle, according to the latest polls.

The Wall Street Journal points out:

Whoever wins on Nov. 6 will make history in the Aloha State. Hawaii will have its first woman senator, and if Ms. Hirono wins the nation will also get its first Buddhist and Asian-American woman.

In Hawaii, voters can cast ballots at the polls between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Hawaii time.
