Deadline to register to vote in August primary this Saturday

JACKSON, Miss. – If you want to vote in the August primary election, the deadline to register to vote is this Saturday, July 4th.

Circuit Clerk’s offices will be open from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday to accept voter registration applications. 

“This is a big election year in Mississippi,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.  “Most statewide offices are on the ballot.  We encourage you to take the time to educate yourself on the candidates and participate in the electoral process by registering to vote today.”

Mail-in voter registration applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, July 3, 2015, as post offices will be closed on July 4, 2015 in observance of the holiday.

Eligible military and overseas voters are given an extended registration period in Mississippi.  The deadline for our military and overseas voters to register to vote is July 25, 2015.

Voter registration applications submitted after July 4, 2015 will be processed by the Circuit Clerk, but the voter will not be eligible to cast a ballot in the August 4, 2015 Primary Election.

Voter registration applications are available at your local Circuit Clerk’s office in the county of residence.  This application may also be used to update your voter registration information if you have moved or had a name change.

You may also download an application from the Secretary of State’s website.

The primary election is scheduled for August 4, 2015.
