Vote with I-D, or Vote without I-D

JACKSON, Miss. — Party Primaries are underway in Mississippi today; and it’s the first time ever voters are required to show identification in order to cast a ballot.

According to Mississippi Secretary of State’s website, there are several acceptable forms of ID including:

·         A driver’s license

 ·         A photo I-D issued by a branch, department, or entity of the State of Mississippi

·         A U.S. passport

·         A government employee I-D card

·         A firearms license

·         A student photo I-D issued by an accredited Mississippi university, college or community/junior college

·         A U.S. military I-D

·         A tribal photo I-D

·         A Mississippi voter identification card

Expired I-D cards listed above , not more than ten years old, are okay to use. More than 1300 free voter I-D cards were issued prior to Tuesday’s Mississippi primary elections.  Voters who do not have photo I-D will be asked to fill out an affidavit ballot; and then will have just five business days to show an acceptable photo  I-D, or apply for a Mississippi voter I-D card at the Circuit Clerk’s office. Once that is done, the affidavit ballot will officially be counted as a legal vote.

Polls close 7 p.m.
