Election Day Reminders

Today is Election Day in Mississippi!  Polls close at 7 p.m., and Mississippians have the opportunity to vote for two U.S. Senators, U.S. House members, and Judges, among others.  Are you prepared to cast your ballot?

 

Helpful tips to ensure your experience at the polls is as smooth as possible are as follows: 

  • Vote in Honor of a Soldier: You can still dedicate your vote to a soldier or veteran in your life at http://www.sos.ms.gov/Education-Publications/Pages/Vote-in-honor-of-a-soldier.aspx. We will send you a small packet of information, including a Vote in Honor of a Soldier sticker.
  • Polling Place Hours: Polling places are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You are permitted to cast a ballot if you are standing in line at 7 p.m.
  • Polling Place Locations: Visit the Secretary of State’s Polling Place Locator for the address of the location where you are required to cast your ballot.
  • Campaigning: Refrain from campaigning for any candidate or party within 150 feet of a polling place, unless you are on private property.
  • Loitering: Refrain from loitering within 30 feet of a polling place, including within the polling place. After you cast your ballot, please depart so your fellow citizens can quickly cast their ballot. 
  • Voter ID: Don’t forget to bring your photo ID to the polls! For more information on acceptable forms of ID, visit www.MSVoterID.ms.gov.
  • Election Hotline: If you experience problems at the polls, or have any other questions, please call the Secretary of State’s Election Hotline at 1-800-829-6786.

See you at the polls!
