The state primary in West Virginia is Saturday, and the Mountain State is preparing for a new governor.
The death of the U.S. Senate's longest-serving member, Robert Byrd, is sending voters back to the polls Saturday for a special gubernatorial primary, which is the state's fourth election in 12 months.
Gregory Ely, County Clerk for Hardy County, says he expects low turnout, only about 20 percent of voters, to show up at the polls.
"I'm not hearing any interest, no. And there hasn't been a lot of campaigning in our area. We're a smaller county and I think the campaigning is probably in the larger counties," says Ely.
Polls are open until 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
