Hi Mississippi, if you want to vote  in the 2022 midterm elections there   are three steps you need to take.

Register,  Make your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered.  In Mississippi, you have to turn in   a paper registration form, which you  can get at your county election office,   or use the link at  to print one out at home. You need to register   by October 10th to vote this November.

Then it’s time to make your plan for   how you’re going to vote. If you’re going to be out of town,   can’t get to the polls because you’re ill  or disabled, or maybe you want to vote in   Mississippi but you go to college somewhere  else, then you can vote absentee.   To do that, you need to contact your county  clerk’s office to have them mail you an absentee   ballot request form, or go to the office to fill  one out in person. There’s no official deadline   to request your absentee ballot, but the sooner  you do it the better, so you have time for them   to get your application, mail you a ballot,  and for you to mail it back so that it gets   to them no later than November 8th.

For everyone else, you’ll need to vote   in person at your polling place on  November 8th. You can look up where   you’ll vote at  and polls are open from 7am to 7pm.   You’ll also need to bring a photo ID  with you—A driver’s license, state ID,   military or tribal ID, student ID from  a Mississippi high school or college,   a passport, or a firearms license all work. If  you don’t have any of those, you can get a free   voter ID from your Circuit Clerk’s office.

So once you have your plan for how you’re going   to vote, where you need to go, what  time you’re going to vote, and what ID   you’re going to bring, you just need to follow  the plan, and go vote on November 8th.   If you want to know ahead of time everything  that’s on your ballot, you can find a sample   ballot at so you  have time to research candidates and make your   decisions. You don’t have to vote for everything  for your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board. There are links for everything you need to   register, vote absentee, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at

Thank you for voting!
