Mississippians return to the polls Tuesday for Republican and Democrat runoffs.

The elections will determine nominees for one statewide and one regional office and both major parties' nominees for several legislative seats.

Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Turnout is traditionally low for runoffs because there are fewer races to lure people to the polls.

Candidates acknowledge it's a challenge to motivate people to remember to vote.

There is one restriction on voting Tuesday. People who cast ballots in one party's primary on Aug. 7 are not allowed to cross over and vote in the other party's runoff.

However, people who did not vote Aug. 7 may vote in either party's runoff.
