With the run-off election Tuesday, the Mississippi Republican Party is getting ready. Harrison County volunteers were dropping off ballots and polling equipment at the 60 voting precincts Monday.

This election, the rules will be a bit different. A resident can only vote in the Cochran/McDaniel race if they voted in the Republican primary that was held on June 3rd or if they didn't vote in either party's primary. However, if you voted in the Democratic primary on June 3rd, you are not eligible to vote in the Republican run-off election Tuesday.

Al Hopkins, the Harrison County Republican Party President, says, “I think we've gone through it, the process. The people have been prepared already and we had them trained before to go and do their job. We're very fortunate in the Republican Party. We have people who have been at this job a long time, and they're outstanding at it.”

Poll workers will have the poll book of all residents who voted in the Democratic primary June 3rd in order to verify voting eligibility. Eligible voters will also be required to bring a photo ID or vote ID, just as in the primaries.
