Mississippi’s Primary Elections are next week and so far absentee ballots for Harrison County have been slow compared to years past.
At the polls on Tuesday, residents will decide whether they want to vote Republican or Democrat. Voters will see 2020 presidential candidates as well as candidates for the congressional race of both parties.
The Mississippi Senate Seat is also up for grabs as Republican Senator Cindy-Hyde Smith runs unopposed against Democrat Mike Espy and two other opponents.
Harrison County Circuit Clerk Connie Ladner encourages everyone to get out and vote. “Just remember your ID. Polls are open 7 to 7, remember not to wear anything political to the polling place because you can’t go in and advertise who you are supporting. If you are someone that needs assistance be sure and let the poll workers know. It’s extremely important for you to get out and let your voice be heard this election and again in November.”
Absentee voting ends Friday at noon. The Circuit Clerk’s Office is open until 5 p.m. today and Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
All mailed ballots must be returned by mail by Monday at 5 p.m.
