Mississippi's Primary Election Day is just one week away. The June 7th ballot features candidates for U.S. House of Representatives.
Tuesday, June 7th, is also Board of Mississippi Levee Commissioners General Election Day for Bolivar, Humphreys, Sharkey and Washington Counties. We encourage voters to contact their county Circuit Clerk's Office to view a General Election sample ballot before heading to the polls.
Polls for the June 7th Primary and General Elections will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Any voter in line at 7 p.m. is legally entitled to cast a ballot. Several counties have changed polling places since the 2020 elections, so we strongly recommend voters verify their polling place with their local Circuit Clerk before Election Day.
In Mississippi, primary elections are conducted by political parties. However, our office will have observers in precincts across the state. Problems at the polls observed by State observers or otherwise reported to our Elections Division will be referred to the authorities, including the Attorney General’s Office or the appropriate District Attorney’s Office. As a reminder, the Secretary of State’s Office has no enforcement authority over election-related issues.
