POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 26, 2012

~~<p>In state House Districts 41 to 51, voters in six districts from Windward Oahu to the Leeward Coast have contested primary races, and the issue of transportation looms large. In two other districts, incumbents face no opposition &mdash; Ken Ito in the 49th (D-Kaneohe, Maunawili) and Cynthia Thielen in the 50th (R-Kailua, Kaneohe) &mdash; so will return; in three other districts, there are no contested races until November's general election.</p>
