Gov. Reeves bans ballot harvesting across the state
Today, Governor Tate Reeves announced that he signed Senate Bill 2358 which officially bans ballot harvesting in Mississippi.
Governor Reeves says this signing is in response to Mississippians across the state asking to create this law. Ballot harvesting is the process of collecting and handling large amounts of absentee ballots by political operatives.
Governor Reeves says this process can lead to fraud and abuse without a voter ever knowing it is happening.
This ban follows last year’s decision to ban illegal aliens and non-citizens from voting in elections as well. Governor Reeves said, “To all those Mississippians who have spoken out on this issue – thank you. Your voices were heard loud and clear, and we have acted decisively to protect your vote. Today represents another major win in this movement, and I was proud to sign this legislation into law.”
Governor Reeves says he will continue to stand strong in defense of elections in Mississippi.
