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.
