The deadline to register to vote in the June 3 Primary Election is Saturday, May 3.

“Voting is a fundamental right guaranteed by our servicemen and women every day,” said Secretary Hosemann. “There is no reason why every eligible Mississippian should not be registered to vote. I encourage you to take advantage of this privilege today.”

Circuit Clerks’ offices will be open from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday to accept voter registration applications.

Mail-in voter registration applications must be postmarked by Saturday to be eligible to vote in the June 3 Primary Election.

Eligible military and overseas voters are given an extended registration period in Mississippi. The deadline for military and overseas voters to register to vote is May 24, 10 days prior to the election.

Voter registration applications submitted after Saturday will be processed by the Circuit Clerk, but the voter will not be eligible to cast a ballot in the June 3 Primary Election. State law requires voters to register 30 days prior to casting a ballot in a particular election.

Mail-in voter registration forms are available at your local Circuit Clerk’s office. You may also download an application from the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ms.gov.
