JACKSON, Miss. – So far, no major election problems have been reported across Mississippi, according to the Secretary of State’s Office.
But Secretary Delbert Hoseman said, as of mid-morning Tuesday, his office had gotten over 130 calls concerning the election. Most of them were about crossover voting. “Individuals recorded as voting in the June 3rd Democratic Primary Election are not eligible to “crossover” and vote in the Republican Primary Election Runoff,” he said.
At least two callers asked about receiving a photo ID today and several others wanted to know about polling locations. Hosemann said Circuit Clerks are issuing IDs today; and polling location questions are being directed to the precincts.
Turnout so far has been steady statewide, and Hosemann said no wait lines had been reported. Poll workers say the heaviest traffic traditionally walks up between 3-7 p.m.
Voters who have questions or have problems at the polls should call the Secretary of State’s office at 1-800-829-6786.
