Mississippi residents who are not already registered to vote are facing a deadline to get their names on the rolls for this year’s elections.
The secretary of state’s office says Monday, October 5, 2020 is the last day for people to go in person to register to vote. Circuit clerks’ offices are scheduled to be open until 5 p.m.
Registration forms that are mailed must be postmarked by Monday.
The general election is Tuesday, November 3. Absentee voting has already started.
You can register to vote at your Circuit Clerk’s office, your Municipal Clerk’s office, when you get your driver’s license at the Department of Public Safety, or through the mail by downloading a voter registration form from our website and mailing it to your Circuit Clerk.
Keep in mind that first time, mail-in, unverified registrants must show ID the first time they go to the polls.
