Voting Reminders

November 3, 2015

 

Jackson, MS - Voting for the 2015 General Election begins TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2015 at 7:00 a.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m.

 

“Our Agency is concerned regarding turnout,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.  “All statewide candidates, education funding and county races are on the ballot.  Voters have every reason to head to the polls on Election Day.”

 

Some tips for Election Day:

 

  • Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

  • Don’t forget your photo ID: A list of acceptable forms of photo ID is available at the following link:  MSVoterID.ms.gov.

  • Vote at off-peak times: Vote mid-morning and mid-afternoon when voting is slower.

  • Review your ballot before you vote:  Sample ballots are posted in each precinct. Sample ballots are also available on the Secretary of State’s website through the polling locator.

  • Know where you vote:  A polling place locator is available on the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ms.gov/pollingplace.

  • Attire:  It is against the law for any candidate or candidate’s representative to distribute campaign literature within 150 feet of a polling location.  It is the position of the Office of the Secretary of State that wearing clothing with a candidate’s name and/or picture on it or other campaign paraphernalia within 150 feet of a polling location constitutes the posting of campaign literature and is prohibited. 

  • No loitering: The polling place should be clear 30 feet of all people except elections officials, voters waiting to vote or pollwatchers.
