September 22: National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day is today (September 22, 2015) and the Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office wants to encourage voters to register to vote in the upcoming General Election.

“Casting a ballot on Election Day is not only our right, but our responsibility—one we too often take for granted,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “We have soldiers who have fought and died to protect the rights you decide on Election Day. Law enforcement and first responders protect our rights as citizens to vote every day. We should honor their sacrifices by registering to vote and by casting a ballot.”

The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming 2015 General Election is Saturday, October 3, 2015.

The following individuals may register to vote in the State of Mississippi:
· A resident of Mississippi and the county, city, or town for 30 days prior to the election;
· At least 18 years old at the date of the election;
· Not declared mentally incompetent by a court; and,
· Not convicted of a disenfranchising crime.

Registering to vote may be done in person at any of the following locations:
· Circuit Clerk’s Office;
· Municipal Clerk’s Office;
· Department of Public Safety; and,
· Any state or federal agency offering government services.

For more information on registering to vote, you may contact your local Circuit Clerk or visit the Secretary of State’s Office at http://www.sos.ms.gov/Elections-Voting/Pages/Voter-Registration-Information.aspx.
