Voter Registration in Mississippi
Voter Registration in Mississippi is handled through the County Circuit Clerk of each county, but you can also register to vote when you apply for your driver's license or identification card.
Pick up an application at your county courthouse, or you can download the Mississippi Voter Registration Application using Adobe Reader. Print it out, complete it, and hand deliver or mail it with the required documentation to your County Circuit Clerk or your local driver's license office. Page two of the application extensively lists the address of every County Circuit Clerk in the state.
The application requests your driver's license number, or the last four digits of your Social Security number for identification purposes. If you do not have either one, you must provide a photo ID, or a current utility bill, pay stub, bank statement or government check showing your correct name and address. Keep in mind that you must register at least 30 days before an election to be eligible to vote.
- You must be at least 18 years old.
- You must have lived within your city and county for at least 30 days to vote in an upcoming election.
Note: If you have ever been convicted of murder, rape, bribery, theft, arson, obtaining goods or money under false pretense, perjury, forgery, bigamy or embezzlement, you lose your right to vote.
If you are stationed outside the United States during an election, and are eligible to vote, the Overseas Vote Foundation provides online assistance to help you register. The Foundation also provides timely information concerning upcoming elections, and it can even provide selected information to you by email.
Voting is a right we have as American citizens. Exercise your right and register to vote, then cast your vote in each and every election, from local to national levels. Your voice counts.Other Topics in This SectionArticles
