In the final two weeks before the election day, officials are helping poll workers prepare.
Although record numbers could come to the polls, Lauderdale County is not hiring extra workers.
"As a matter of fact, the law actually states how many poll workers we can hire for so many registered voters. Of course, you do have to stay in those guidelines," said election commission chairman Ann Watts.
From March to October, roughly 2,000 new voters were added to Lauderdale County's voter rolls. There are at least 173,000 new voters in Mississippi.
In all, there will be 344 people working at Lauderdale County's 54 precincts on election day.
Watts said there will be at least two of the electronic voting machines at every precinct. Some larger precincts have up to nine.
