Miss. voter registration deadline is Saturday

By The Associated Press

JACKSON – Mississippians who want to vote in the Nov. 8 general election must be registered by this weekend.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says the law requires circuit clerks’ offices in all 82 counties to be open 8 a.m. until noon this Saturday, the registration deadline.

Hosemann says mail-in voter registration forms must be postmarked by this Saturday.

The November ballot has all eight statewide positions, including governor. It also has regional races for transportation and public service commissioners, district races for all 174 legislators and county races for supervisors, circuit clerks and other jobs.

Voters also will decide whether to adopt three proposed constitutional amendments. One would restrict eminent domain, one would require voters to show identification at the polls and one would define life as beginning at conception.
