Primary Run-offs Approach

Runn-offs is not far away and voters will be asked to once again to return to their voting location and cast a vote for the future of Mississippi—-HA–sorry that was just too sarcastic, even for me.

There are some rule changes for the run-offs:

  • If you are an eligible voter and did not vote in the primary, you may vote in either of the political parties’ primary runoffs.
  • If you voted in the Democratic primary on May 5, you may only vote in the Democratic primary runoff. If you voted in the Republican primary, you may only vote in the Republican primary runoff.
  • Only voters who are blind, physically disabled or cannot read or write are eligible to receive voter assistance upon request.
  • Candidates whose names appear on the ballot cannot assist absentee voters.
  • By law, mailed absentee ballots must be received by the municipal clerk’s office by 5 p.m. on Monday. But those voting absentee in person at the clerk’s office have until noon on Saturday.

    The signatures of the voter and attesting witness must be signed across the flap of the absentee ballot envelope. Failure to do so will result in rejection of the ballot.  Choose wisely and the state can prosper.
