If a voter doesn't have an documentation proving their identity, circuit clerks may verify their birth record free of charge. If a voter needs transportation to the circuit clerk's office, the Secretary of State's office will take care of it, also free of charge.

Voter ID will be in effect in Mississippi beginning with the June 3, 2014 Primary Election. Any one voting at the Polls June 3 or by absentee ballot in person at the Circuit Clerk's Office prior to June 3 will be required to show an acceptable form of photo ID.
