Early voting for the May 14 special gubernatorial election begins Friday and continues through May 11.
The Secretary of State's office says Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the primary.
The special general election to fill the remainder of former Gov. Joe Manchin's term is October 4. Manchin was elected to the U.S. Senate last year.
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 in May.
