Mississippi’s General and Special Election Day is finally here. Tuesday’s ballot includes congressional, state judicial, and school board races, as well as a handful of special elections.

To make navigating the voting process as easy as possible, Secretary of State Michael Watson has provided the following Election Day reminders:

  • In-Person Voting: Polls for the November 8 Elections open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Any voter in line is legally entitled to cast a ballot.
  • Polling Place Location: Please contact your County Circuit Clerk’s Office or local Election Commissioners to verify your polling place. Click here for a polling place locator. 
  • Voter Photo ID: Voters are required to show photo identification at the polls. A voter without an acceptable form of identification is entitled to cast an affidavit ballot. Click here for a list of acceptable photo IDs. 
  • Campaigning: It is unlawful to campaign for any candidate within 150 feet of any entrance to a polling place, unless on a private property.
  • Loitering: The polling places should be clear for 30 feet from every entrance of all people except elections officials, voters waiting to vote, or authorized poll watchers.
  • Camera Phones: Voters are prohibited from taking pictures of their marked ballot.
