County absentee ballots due by Saturday, Nov. 2


Circuit clerks’ offices in Mississippi are open regular business hours through Friday and then 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 2, for people to cast absentee ballots.
Nov. 5 is the election for governor and other statewide races, transportation and public service commissioners in three regions, legislative seats and county offices.
The deadline for in-person absentee voting is Nov. 2. Mail-in absentee ballots must be received by Nov. 4.
Mississippi law says absentee voting is available to people who will be out of town on election day, including college students. It is also available to anyone who has a temporary or permanent disability or who is 65 or older.
