While frontrunners Tomblin and Maloney are getting the bulk of the attention, there are a few other names on the ballot.

No doubt, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) and Bill Maloney (R) will earn the majority of votes October 4, but there are a few other names you'll see on the ballot in the race for governor.

The Mountain Party nominated former Richwood Mayor Bob Henry Baber. School counselor Marla Dee Ingels is running as an independent. Also, Harry Bertram is running on behalf of the American Third Position Party.

In the video, you'll see a brief explanation about each candidate and hear from them about some of their positions and why they're running.

It's always a struggle for third-party and independent candidates to gain enough notoriety, momentum and cash to win one of these races. But, for some of them it's more about the chance to get one point across or at least make the statement that voters deserve more options. Some even relish the chance to siphon off votes from candidates with whom they don't agree.  

What do you think it will take for non-Democrat and non-Republican candidates to pull off a win in a statewide race?
