(WJTV) — We are exactly one week away from Election Day.

Voters will hit the polls on November 8 to choose who they want to be their next president and leaders of other positions.

Here is some valid information that you need to know on Election Day.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann held a news conference Tuesday to address some concerns.

The Secretary of State’s Office said there are about 1.86 million active registered voters in the state. Hosemann said 71,544 absentee ballots have been requested by voters.

He said that local election commissioners, circuit clerks who run Mississippi elections and designated poll workers are allowed to remain in the precincts on General Election due to state law.  Designated federal and state observers are also allowed to remain in polling places. We’re told that there will be observers in at least 32 counties.

Two credentialed poll watchers on behalf of each political party are also permitted to observe in the precinct as well

Polls will be open from 7 a.m until 7 p.m. on Election Day. Below are some links to helpful information.
