CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Primary election day appears to be a quiet day across West Virginia.

Secretary of State spokesman Jake Glance says despite one power outage issue, polls across the state opened as planned at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

Glance says since the polls opened, things have been very quiet.

Republicans and Democrats are voting Saturday for their respective nominees for the Oct. 4 special gubernatorial election.

There are eight Republicans and six Democrats seeking their party's nomination. The winners will face Mountain Party candidate Bob Henry Baber this fall.

The election is to fill the remainder of former Governor Joe Manchin's term. Manchin was elected to the U.S. Senate last year to fill a vacancy created by the death of Sen. Robert C. Byrd.
