Early voting has begun across the Mountain State for the special primary on May 14th.

In Wood County roughly 100 people showed up Saturday to cast their ballot to see who will be running for governor in the October 4th special general election.

Wood County Clerk Jamie Six says voting numbers are right on par.

"On an off year like this, a special election, we don't expect to have 20% turn out. The numbers are kind of indicating that," Six says. "We had a little over 200 yesterday (Friday) and close to 100 today (Saturday). We are right on target for a 15% or so turn out which is pretty typical for these special elections."

Six democrats and eight republicans are running in the primary.
Two mountain party candidates are seeking their party's nomination, which will be decided by convention on Sunday.
