Voters can text for info on Tuesday

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi voters with questions for election officials on Tuesday can send text-message queries to the Secretary of State’s Office.

Delbert Hosemann’s office says it’s the second year the state has implemented the Election Day testing program.

Voters can text “MSVote” to 57711 to receive election day assistance.

Once the initial message is sent, the voter will receive a prompt on the phone with instructions on what to do to receive contact information if they have a problem or question about voting.
