Primary Election Day voting

It’s a day of decision for voters throughout the state as the primary election is underway in Mississippi.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. and a line was out the door beforehand at the voting precinct on Debuys Road.

A few things to remember if you still need to vote: you must bring an official ID with you to vote. You’re also encouraged to check your voter registration cards and precinct information before heading to the polls.

Remember, for primary elections you will be asked if you are voting Republican or Democratic once you arrive to your voting precinct.

News 25 caught up with some of those early voters and they all had the same thing to say: it’s important to vote to make sure your voice is heard. Voter Eddie Valeros said, “Everyone should get out and vote. This is your opportunity to have a voice.”

Voter Robert Blaze said, “If you don’t get involved then you are just at the mercy of other people’s opinions.”

Voter Ilan Prichard said, “It’s important to do. You have a voice. You should use it.”

Voter Aubrey Prichard said, “If you are not out participating then you don’t really have a voice and when you have an opinion you should vote. That’s the only way you’re ever going to change anything.”

Polls will be open until 7 p.m.
