According to this article, it is likely that Hawaii Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa will be appointed to Hawaii’s vacant U.S. Senate seat. If that happens, Hawaii will then soon hold a special election to fill Hanabusa’s seat. Hawaii special U.S. House elections are one-round elections in which parties do not have nominees. When Hawaii held a special U.S. House election in 2010, two popular Democrats ran, splitting the normal Democratic vote, so that Republican Charles Djou was elected. The vote in that special May 2010 special election for the top three candidates were: Republican Djou 67,610; Democrat Colleen Hanabusa 52,802, Democrat Ed Case 47,391. But in November 2010, in a normal partisan election, Djou lost to Hanabusa.
