After much political jockeying, West Virginians will go to the polls twice this year in the race for governor.

The House of Delegates agreed Thursday to the changes the state Senate made to its bill setting the elections for May 14 and Oct. 4.

Acting Governor Earl Ray Tomblin will sign the bill.

An election will be held in 2012 to elect a 4-year full-term governor.

The legislature is anteing up about $8 million to finance the two elections.
