Voter turnout appears to be very light Tuesday during runoffs across the state of Mississippi. Voters are tidying up party primaries, casting ballots in a handful of runoff races left undecided following the August 7 election.

Secretary of State Eric Clark says it's really important for folks to go be part of the process.

In several races that had multiple candidates in the August 7 Democratic and Republican primaries, the top two advanced to runoffs.

The only statewide runoff is in the Democratic primary for state auditor between Todd Brand and Mike Sumrall.

There's also a regional Democratic runoff for public service commissioner in the central district.

Dozens of counties have Democratic or Republican runoffs for a plethora of offices, from state House and Senate to county supervisor or chancery clerk.

The party nominees from the primaries advance to the Nov. 6 general election.
