After a lot of debating, a gubernatorial appointment and a state Supreme Court order, it's time for you to choose whom you would like to be the Governor of West Virginia.

The primary gubernatorial election was on May 14, and the general election will take place on October 4. 

The state Supreme Court ordered that a new governor had to be elected by November 15th. That is one year from the day Senator Joe Manchin stepped down and Gov. Tomblin took over as acting Governor.

**If you would like to take a look at the Supreme Court decision, click here.**

The candidate that is elected during the general election will only serve a one-year term, which is the remainder of what would have been Senator Manchin’s second term as Governor.

The elected candidate will then have to run for re-election in 2012, which is a Presidential election year, to fulfill a four-year term.

As part of WSAZ.com's goal to inform voters, we have provided links to each of the candidate's websites. Simply click on any of the pictures above and you will be redirected to their individual sites.
