As of 10 a.m. Tuesday, the Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office had received approximately 150 calls at its election hotline.
Delbert Hosemann's office said those issues included finding a polling location, minor technical issues with voting machines, and voter registration questions.
“In comparison to previous years, as of right now, the 2014 Primary Election Day has been very quiet in Mississippi,” said Hosemann. “The limited number of calls coming into our Office, coupled with the lack of activity on the Statewide Election Management System and reports from our observers, indicate we have had light turnout thus far.”
The Secretary of State’s Office has also had limited calls regarding voter ID.
“We have devoted countless hours of time and training to election officials across the State. No news is good news,” said Hosemann. “We believe Mississippians were ready to put this issue behind us. It was time for us to close this chapter in our history. We have done so today.”
The polls are open till 7 p.m. Voters with issues regarding the election are encouraged to contact their local circuit clerk’s office, or the Secretary of State’s Office at 1-844-678-6837.
Mississippi is choosing party nominees for U.S. Senate and House offices. Other races, such as non-partisan judgeships and school board seats, will appear on the November ballot.
