West Virginia Voters Head to the Polls

Local - 11/6/2012 4:35 PM
After months of campaigning and thousands of political ads hitting the airwaves, West Virginia voters headed to the polls today.

Polls opened at 6:30 AM Tuesday across the state.  Voters chose who they wanted to be President for the next four years.  They also decided state-wide races, including the one for Governor between Earl Ray Tomblin and Bill Maloney and Senate between Sen. Joe Manchin and John Raese.  In Fayette County, some voters say the presidential election was the most important to them.

"I care more about the national level, but, of course, our representation from West Virginia in Washington concerns me," says Penny Kiliany of Fayetteville.

But other voters were more focused on the state and county-wide races.

"I guess because it more involves us when it comes to all different levels," says Connie Bowers of Ballard.

Polls close at 7:30 PM in West Virginia.
