How to Vote in Mississippi in 2018


Hello Mississippi.
If you want to vote, first you need to
register. If you’re not sure if you’re registered already,
you’ll can use the link in the description to
check your registration status. If you’re not registered yet, or you’ve
moved or changed your name since the last time
you voted, you’ll need to register by mail. I know it’s kind of a pain, but you can print off
the registration form online using the link below and mail it to your county circuit clerk by
October 9th if you want to be registered in time
for the November midterm election. Otherwise, you can find a paper application at the DMV,
any state or federal social service agency, or your circuit
clerk’s office in if you don’t have access to a printer, but the deadline to register in person is
October 8th. Once you’re registered to get to vote. For most people, that means heading to
the polls on November 6th. But if you’re over 65, or disabled, or won’t be
in your home county on election day, you can
apply to vote absentee. There’s not a form to do that online, though. You have to find your municipal or circuit clerk’s
contact info using the link below and write or call
them to request an absentee ballot between
September 21st and election day. The sooner you do it, the better so that you have
enough time to get your ballot in the mail, fill it out at
your own pace, and send it back by November 5th. For everyone else, you can go to the polls
between 7am and 7pm on November 6th. And there’s a link in the description to
figure out where you need to go to vote. You will need to bring a photo ID with you,
like a driver’s license, State ID, passport, student ID from a college or university in
Mississippi, firearms license, or military
or tribal ID. If you don’t have any of those, you can
get a free voter ID card at your circuit clerk’s
office during normal business hours. Their locations and hours are in the links below, as
is a phone number you can call if you have questions
or need help with transportation to get a voter ID. Closer to election day, you can go to the link in
the description to look at a sample ballot that will
tell you everything you’ll be able to vote for. You don’t have to vote for every single item on the
ballot – you can leave things blank if you want to, but your local elections can be very important, so
it’s worth checking out what’s on there ahead of time. You can even print that out, fill it out at home,
and then bring it to the polls with you, so you
don’t forget who and what you wanted to vote for. The best thing to do if you’re planning
to vote in the midterms is to make a plan
to vote right now— from what day you’re going to register to whether
you going to vote in person or absentee. What kind of ID you’re going to use, and
where it is, even what time you’re gonna go
vote and how you’re gonna get there. Just make sure you have a plan so that nothing
unexpected stops you from being counted on
November 6th. All the links you need to check your registration
and polling location are in the description. Thank you for voting.
