Where to Vote

We had an interesting conversation around the teppanyaki at Ichiban last night; few around the table knew the location of their voting precinct, where they should vote. One person from Laurelwood thought it was the Laurelwood clubhouse. Incorrect. One person from Regatta thought it was St. Mark's Church on Grant's Ferry.  Also wrong.

Things have changed, especially if you did not vote in the Senatorial election last year.

There are two easy ways to determine the correct voting location: 1) use the Voter Record Search on the www.rankincounty.org website; or 2) find your precinct on the official Rankin County GIS map (make sure the "Voting Precincts" layer is checked).  Once you know your precinct, find the voting booth address on the Precinct Spreadsheet.

***LAURELWOOD RESIDENTS, I note the Precinct Spreadsheet is incorrect for you.  You will note be voting at the Flowood YMCA.  Instead, you will vote at Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency, across Liberty Road.  Hopefully, there will be plenty of signage to direct confused voters to MORA.

Thanks for the update... I live in Laurelwood and was sent a "corrected" voter ID card in the mail recently that says to vote at the Laurelwood clubhouse. I am sure this is going to confuse a lot of people.

You are the second person to tell me that. I am going to look into it to see if I am in error.

Ok. I have the answer. The voting card recently mailed by the Circuit Clerk's office had the precinct location for both county and city elections. Laurelwood residents, being inside the municipal boundaries of Flowood, vote for both county and city elections. For county/state elections (like you have tomorrow), Laurelwood residents will vote at Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency. For city elections (next year), Laurelwood residents will vote at the Laurelwood clubhouse.
