Voters head to the polls for the midterm elections

Midterm voting is underway and voters in South Mississippi were out bright and early this morning ready to cast their ballots.

People were lined up outside the Lyman Community Center in Gulfport waiting to exercise their right to vote.

Poll workers started arriving around 6 this morning to make sure everything was in place and ready for voters.

If absentee ballots are any indication of voter turnout, it’s a great sign of what’s to come today.

Harrison County officials tell us the county had about 3,000 absentee ballots for this election, which is more than usual for a midterm.

Don’t forget to bring your photo ID today. Polls will remain open until 7 tonight.

Turn to News 25 tonight for results.
