Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is visiting U.S. military troops overseas to encourage them to participate in the 2008 elections through absentee ballots.
Hosemann and four other secretaries of state made the trip at the request of the U. S. Department of Defense and the National Association of Secretaries of State.
Hosemann was in Baghdad Wednesday to meet with soldiers and observe how an absentee ballot is mailed and processed.
Hosemann's office said DOD sponsored the trip at no cost to Mississippi taxpayers.
