Tuesday Election Reminders

Election Day Reminders

Jackson, MS—The 2012 Primary Election is Tuesday, March 13, 2012.  Mississippians will cast a ballot for Presidential, Congressional, and Senatorial candidates in the party primary.

“If you don’t vote, you do not have a say in national politics,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.  “If you cast a ballot, you will help decide our Commander in Chief.  Honor our servicemen and women by voting in the Primary Election.”

Party primaries will be conducted by the Democratic and Republican parties.  Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm on Election Day.

“We have some big decisions to make on Election Day.  In our United States, every decision begins at the ballot box,” adds Secretary Hosemann. 

Some tips for Election Day:

  • Polling Location:  This is especially important for first-time voters.  Your voter registration card lists your proper polling location.  If you are not sure of your polling location, visit the “Polling Locator” on the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ms.gov or contact your local Circuit Clerk.
  • Identification:  If you are a first time, unverified registrant who registered by mail, and you did not provide a Help America Vote Act (HAVA)-approved form of identification with your application federal law requires you to show identification acceptable to the HAVA standards.  According to HAVA, the following are acceptable forms of identification:  a copy of a current and valid photo ID, a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or government document that shows the name and address of the voter. 
  • Attire:  It is against the law for any candidate or candidate’s representative to distribute campaign literature within 150 feet of a polling location.  It is the position of the Office of the Secretary of State that wearing clothing with a candidate’s name and/or picture on it or other campaign paraphernalia within 150 feet of a polling location constitutes the posting of campaign literature and is prohibited. 

Sample Ballot:  A 2012 Primary Election sample ballots are available on the Secretary of State’s website.
