This week, voters have requested more than 24,000 absentee ballots, bringing the total count to 95,967 requested absentee ballots.  As of Monday, October 31, only 71,544 absentee ballots had been requested.
“The surge in requests is a good indication turn out may reach 2012 levels—or beyond,” Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said.  “When more Mississippians participate in elections by taking the time to cast a ballot, the entire Nation wins.  Our United States began with the right to cast our ballots and will be maintained by casting our ballots on Election Day.”
During the 2012 General Election, 106,722 absentee ballots were requested.  More than 1.86 million Mississippians are registered to vote in the upcoming election.  Census data estimates the State’s eligible voting age population to be about 2.26 million.

Circuit Clerk’s Offices will be open from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, November 5, to allow voters to cast an absentee ballot in-person.  Mailed absentee ballots must be received by 5 p.m. on Monday, November 7.
Polls are open on November 8 Election Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Any voter in line at 7 p.m. is entitled to cast a ballot.  Voters can find their polling place and a sample ballot by visiting the Secretary of State’s Polling Place Locator.
