March 12 is Election Day in Mississippi. Here’s what to know before heading to the polls

Mississippi’s congressional and presidential primaries are set for Tuesday, March 12. To make navigating the voting process as easy as possible, here’s everything you need to know before heading to the polls.

In-person voting: polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Any registered voter in line is legally entitled to cast a ballot. Polling place location: Click here to find where you’re supposed to vote. If you have any questions or want to confirm your polling location, call your county circuit clerk’s office of local election commissioners. What to bring: Voters are required to show photo identification at the polls, so make sure to bring your driver’s license, passport, or any of the acceptable forms of identification. Phones: You can take your phone inside with you, but do not take any photos as it’s illegal to take pictures of marked ballots. Campaigning: It is unlawful to campaign for any candidate within 150 feet of any entrance to a polling location unless on private property. Loitering: Polling places should be clear 30 feet from every entrance of all people except election officials, voters waiting to vote, or authorized poll watchers. Who can vote?

Any registered voter may participate in either primary as voters in Mississippi do not register by party. In the event of a runoff, eligible voters must stick to the party they voted for on March 12 while those who didn’t vote will still be allowed to participate. While it is too late to register for the primary elections, those who want to vote in the Nov. 5 general election have until Oct. 7 to register.

Who’s on the ballot?

Congressional and presidential candidates are on the ballot for both Democrats and Republicans. Representing the GOP in the presidential election will be Donald Trump and former candidates Nikki Haley, Ron DeSantis, and Vivek Ramaswamy. Joe Biden is the only candidate on the Democratic presidential ballot in Mississippi. For a full list of who’s running for the five of six congressional seats up for grabs, click here.
