Circuit Clerks Issuing Voter ID Cards

By  | 

Circuit clerks have started issuing voter identification cards in Mississippi.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says Thursday that clerks in about 15 of the 82 counties have issued the cards.

Starting in the June 3 federal primaries, each Mississippi voter will have to show one of 10 specific forms of photo identification at the polls.

The first nine are: a driver's license; an ID issued by any branch of Mississippi state government; a U.S. passport; a government employee ID card; a gun license; a student ID from an accredited public or private college; a U.S. military ID; a tribal photo ID; or any other photo ID issued by any branch of the federal government.

Anyone lacking one of those may get a free photo ID at a circuit clerk's office.
