Absentee voting has begun for upcoming municipal elections in Meridian and other cities and towns in Mississippi.
Absentee ballots are available in Meridian at city hall.
There are several legal reasons you're allowed to vote absentee in Mississippi.
Those include if you will be out of town the day of the primary elections May 7. The last day absentee ballots may be cast is the last Saturday before the election, which in this case is May 4.
