With the second election printout at about 8 p.m. Saturday, Rep. Justin Woodson continued to hold a 52.8 percent lead over challenger and former Mayor James "Kimo" Apana, who polled 42.8 percent with only absentee and walk-in voting tallied.
Woodson had 1,184 votes to Apana's 961 votes. The winner will capture the seat.

In the Makawao-Haiku-Paia council residency race, Mike Molina held an early lead with 6,496 votes (40.9 percent) to incumbent Mike White, 5,780 (36.4 percent). They appear to be headed to the general election for a face-off.
In the mayor's race, Mayor Alan Arakawa has a commanding lead with nearly 64 percent of the vote with 10,136 votes. His challenger in the general election will appear to be Tamara Paltin, who polled 10.1 percent and 1,603 votes.
