In just about a month Mississippians will go to the polls and vote on some important local, state and national races. The presidential race no doubt is getting the most attention these days.
Whether Democrat President Barack Obama should be elected to a second term or should challenger Republican Mitt Romney be elected to the highest office. That will be an important decision you will need to make. However first make sure you are a registered voter in Mississippi.
You have until Saturday, October 6th to register. It will only take you a few minutes to fill out the voter registration application. You can pick up the form from your local county circuit clerk office or get it online from the Secretary of State web site.
Once you have registered, you will receive your voter registration card in the mail, then you will be set to cast your vote. Also, remember if you have moved since the last election and you now live in another county, you need to register with the circuit clerk in the new county.
In Mississippi on November 6th we will be voting on a State Supreme Court Justice, our U.S. Congressman, a U.S. Senator as well as the Presidential race. It is an important election, so please make sure you are registered to vote.
