Mississippians face voter registration deadline | Politics
Eligible Mississippi voters have until this Saturday, October 8, to register to vote in the November 8 general election.
Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said circuit clerk offices in every Mississippi county will open from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday to accommodate procrastinating registrants.
“We elect not only our statewide, legislative, and some county officials, but we also decide three basic constitutional issues this general election,” said Hosemann. “The Personhood, Voter Identification and Eminent Domain initiatives will be on the ballot this General Election.
"Don’t let someone else decide these important initiatives for you—register to vote in the upcoming election. I encourage you not to wait until the last minute. Register to vote today.”
Hosemann said eligible voters may also register by mail. They can pick up registration forms at their county's circuit clerk's office or online at at www.sos.ms.gov. Applications must be post-marked by Saturday, October 8.
The deadline for military personnel to register to vote is October 29, ten days before the election.
