Absentee Ballot Deadlines Near

By  | 

Mississippi residents still have time to vote by absentee ballot. Voters across the nation will go to the polls Nov. 6.

Absentee voting in Mississippi continues in person at the county clerk's office until noon Saturday. Mailed absentee ballots must be received in the clerk's office by 5 p.m. Nov. 5.

Military absentee ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Nov. 6.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says absentee voting is typically a pretty good indicator of voter turnout on election day.

He says voters were turning out but not in numbers comparable with the previous presidential election cycle, when nearly 10 percent of the votes cast were absentee.
