Mississippi will not have a republican primary on March 9, known as "Super Tuesday".
The state party made the decision because there's no other republican candidate challenging President Bush for the party nomination.
It will save election officials from having to staff the polls with personnel to accommodate those who would cast ballots in the GOP primary.
However, the Democratic Party will have its primary statewide. Several democrats are competing in the presidential race.
Polls will be open in Mississippi from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on March 9 for registered voters to participate in the democratic primary.
