Hawaii House officials say the chamber's final vote on a bill to legalize gay marriage will be broadcast live on television across the state.

The special session vote scheduled for Friday will be broadcast on Olelo Channel 54 on Oahu and community stations on Kauai, the Big Island and Maui.

The Oahu broadcaster also plans to stream the final debate and vote through a live webcast at http://www.olelo.org.

The live coverage comes after several lawmakers complained on the House floor Wednesday night that their debate was only carried on closed-circuit TV at the Hawaii Capitol.

Crowds gathered in the chamber and outside in the Capitol rotunda, with many people huddling around a television to catch what lawmakers were saying.
