CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Candidates for this year's elections have begun filing in West Virginia.

Monday marked the first day in which candidates could file.

Six partisan statewide offices, including an open governor's race, are on the 2016 ballot.

One Supreme Court seat is in play. The nonpartisan race will be decided during the May primary election.

Every House of Delegates seat and 17 of 34 state Senate seats are on the ballot.

Certificates of announcement and filing fees must be received in the appropriate office or postmarked before midnight Jan. 30.
