The special primary election for West Virginia's next governor is a little more than two weeks away but early voting starts Friday.

In Parkersburg, the Wood County Clerk's office has been setting up inside the Judge Black Annex at Fourth and Market Streets.

The voting equipment will be up and running Friday morning.

Wood County Clerk Jamie Six said typically voter turnout for a special election with one issue on the ballot is lower.

"Last year we had statewide was only 12 percent for the special primary election last year and we did about 14/15 percent I believe last year. It's tough to get to 20 percent on these special elections- one issue," he said.

Early voting begins Friday and runs through May 11. The primary is May 14.

During the week you can stop by from 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Saturdays the annex will be open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

    The people who are running should get their information out to the voters earlier. Some of us have already voted.
