What to know to about voting in Mississippi’s primary runoffs

Three Congressional GOP runoffs are less than 24 hours away, with several candidates vying for a seat in Districts 2, 3, and 4. Here are some reminders Secretary of State Michael Watson has for voters looking to cast their ballot:

  • Who Can Vote: All registered voters from Districts 2, 3, and 4 qualify to vote in the Republican Primary Election Runoffs. Voters that did not cast a ballot in the Primary Election are still eligible to vote in the runoffs.
  • Crossover Voting: Voters who cast a ballot in another political party’s Primary Election cannot legally cast a ballot in the Republican Primary Election Runoffs.
  • In-person Voting: Polls will be open for voters to cast their ballot on June 28 starting at 7 a.m. and closing at 7 p.m. Any voter that is in line by 7 p.m. 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. 
  • Mail-In Absentee Voting Deadline: All Primary and General Election mail-in absentee ballots must be postmarked by June 28th and received by County Circuit Clerk Offices within five business days of June 28th in order to count.
  • Campaigning: It is unlawful to campaign for any candidate within 150 feet of any entrance to a polling place, unless on 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.

Here are this year’s candidates in the runoffs:

  • District 2: Brian Flowers and Ron Eller
  • District 3: Michael Guest and Michael Cassidy
  • District 4: Steven Palazzo and Mike Ezell
