Polls open at 6:30 a.m. across the state for midterm elections Tuesday.
Counties across North Central West Virginia are voting to fill seats in the West Virginia House of Delegates and Senate, as well as voting on other local races.
Two races will look the same on every ballot across the state: The U.S. Senate and the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals.
Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is facing off against incumbent Senator Joe Manchin. Over the past several months, the candidates have attacked each other over issues such as healthcare, gun ownership, the opioid crisis, and the economy.
Morrisey has received the endorsement of President Donald Trump. Both the president and Vice President Mike Pence have traveled to the state to campaign for him. Manchin has received the support of local legends Bob Huggins, Nick Saban, and Jerry West.
Also on the ballot is Libertarian Rusty Hollen, who received 11% of support in a recent poll by WV Metronews.
Twenty candidates are on the ballot to fill the two vacancies on the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, ten for each open seat.
Also on the ballot for all are two state constitutional amendments. If passed, Amendment I would add language saying that nothing in the Constitution "secures or protects a right to abortion
or requires the funding of abortion."
Amendment II would give legislative oversight to the spending of the state judiciary.
Polls will remain open until 7:30 p.m. For more information and to view sample ballots, you can visit the WV Secretary of State's Office at sos.wv.gov/elections.
