West Virginia's county clerks are now sending out requested absentee ballots for the 2011 special gubernatorial general election on Oct. 4.

State law requires the ballots be sent out 46 days before the election to ensure deployed military and overseas citizens the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.

Secretary of State Natalie Tennant also said that a new feature on her office's website allows voters who request an absentee ballot to track the status of their ballot by letting them know when it was sent and when it was received.

Officials say the deadline to register to vote in the special election is Sept. 13. Early voting begins on Sept. 21 and runs through Oct. 1.
