Hosemann Says Voters Should Be Informed About Initiatives

Mississippi's secretary of state is traveling the state to inform voters about three important initiatives on the Nov. 8 ballot.

Voters will be asked to vote 'yes' or 'no' on three measures.

One is about whether or not voters must show a photo ID in order to vote.

Another asks if the term 'person' should be defined as a human being from the moment of fertilization.

The third asks if government should be prohibited from taking property through eminent domain and then transferring it to others.

"The role of the secretary of state in this is to inform all the voters about the right to vote, the right to life and the right to real property," said Delbert Hosemann. "These three historic events are coming up. So we try to make as impartial a statement as possible, as required by the legislature. You'll see that in our pamphlets and also the information on our website."

Hosemann encourages voters to be informed about the issues and then be sure to cast your vote. Click the link below to visit the Mississippi Secretary of State's website.
