Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said he's pushing his voter reform agenda to restore the integrity of each vote in the state.
So far, a voter ID bill and a voter reform bill have both passed the state Senate.
The state House of Representatives is looking at purging the voter rolls in the state to remove those on the lists who are deceased.
Last summer, federal Judge Allan Pepper issued an order that Mississippi be required to institute voter identification laws, as well as reform party primaries in the state. The state has appealed that ruling.
Hosemann said he hopes the legislature can come to an agreement on voter ID, as well as voter reform, before that ruling will take effect.
"I really an personally tired of the federal courts ordering Mississippi's elections," said Hosemann. "You can look in the legislature and see the diversity we have there. And I believe we can run our own election. I believe we can make good common sense legislature without having a court order to do it."
All voter ID bills brought up in the House died in committee. Hosemann said he still feels confident that both the House and Senate can come to a compromise to bring true voter reform to the state.
