Mississippi Election Day Tips and Polling Place Locator

Some tips for Election Day:

  • Polls are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • Don’t forget your photo ID: A list of acceptable forms of photo ID is available at the following link:  MSVoterID.ms.gov.
  • Vote at off-peak times: Vote mid-morning and mid-afternoon when voting is slower.
  • Review your ballot before you vote:  Sample ballots are posted in each precinct. Sample ballots are also available on the Secretary of State’s website through the polling locator.
  • Know where you vote:  A polling place locator is available on the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ms.gov/pollingplace.
  • 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. 
  • No loitering: The polling place should be clear 30 feet of all people except elections officials, voters waiting to vote or pollwatchers.
