Early Voting + Absentee Voting

Early Voting Dates: Vary by county

You can vote in person at your clerk’s office before the election using an absentee ballot. Start dates vary by county; all early voting ends on March 9th at 5pm. Excuse required.

To vote absentee by mail, first you’ll need to apply for an absentee ballot (click here).  Mississippi does not have a deadline to apply for a ballot, however, we recommend you apply as early as possible. Then, when you complete your absentee ballot, it must be received by March 9th. Excuse required.
