MISSISSIPPI ABSENTEE BALLOTS

Who Can Absentee Vote in Mississippi?
Some registered voters are eligible to vote absentee because of age, health or work demands, or their affiliation with the United States armed forces. For example, voters who will be outside their county of residence on Election Day are entitled to vote by absentee ballot. Please check with your Circuit or Municipal Clerk to determine if you are entitled to vote absentee and to learn the procedures for doing so. (contact information)
