Get out the Vote in Bay St. Louis
We’re in the middle of municipal election season and the Mississippi Republican Party is reminding everyone to get out and vote.
Party Chairman Joe Nosef joined other members of the Republican Party at the Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino. The event serves as an opportunity for people to get to know their Republican municipal candidates and elected officials.
Nosef tells News 25 he hopes everyone will get out and vote June 6th for the general election. “There’s so many people who, I think while they understand the importance of municipal elections, for one reason or another, aren’t really focused on the general election day. I think some think that they’re over already because the primary vote was maybe hotly contested and they think that some of the people that won that already are in the position they’re in. Some of the primaries we had some really lower turnouts than we hoped for and we really want to try to make a difference this time.”
Another Get out the Vote event happened in Harrison County at Cora’s Restaurant in Biloxi. There was also one held in Jackson County earlier this morning.
