HONOLULU (AP) - U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa of Hawaii is asking a court on the Big Island to delay a makeup election for more than 8,000 voters, saying they should have more time to recover from a tropical storm before casting ballots in a primary that includes her running for U.S. Senate.

Hanabusa filed a request for a temporary restraining order Wednesday in a state circuit court. The complaint asks a judge to stop Chief Election Officer Scott Nago from holding a postponed election for two precincts Friday.

State elections officials plan to allow more than 8,000 voters cast ballots at an elementary school. The state plans to release results Friday night.

Hanabusa is challenging U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz in a Democratic primary.
