The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office is making it easier for voters to get election day assistance.
Voters may text the word 'vote' to 57711 on Election Day, Nov. 2, to receive the number to the agency's elections hotline.
“People text more than they talk,” said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “We want to make contacting our agency as easy as possible to those who may need to reach us on Election Day.”
Hosemann said this standard reply will be sent to the voter: “We take voting very seriously. Please call our elections hotline at 800-829-6786.”
The secretary said the program is provided free-of-charge by AmeriMail Digital Direct, a Mississippi company. However, if applicable, standard text messaging charges will apply.
