BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Election Day in Mississippi is running smoothly. That's according to the Secretary of State's Office. At 10am, Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said no wait times have been reported, and most of the calls received by his agency have been regarding minor machine issues and general election questions.

Issues have been reported in:

Harrison County: Issues regarding electronic pollbooks. The use of electronic pollbooks is a county decision. The Secretary of State's Office has spoken with the Harrison County Circuit Clerk's Office who is working on those issues.

Washington County: The Secretary of State's Office has received complaints the county decision to disable printers on voting machines has caused some voter confusion. However, all votes are being cast and counted.

Hinds County: Our Agency has received numerous calls regarding the Hinds County DS 200 Precinct Scanner. There were reports the precinct scanner was down at Eudora Welty Library and Casey Elementary School.

Remember, if you're unsure of where to vote, you can search for your polling place online: http://www.sos.ms.gov/pollingplace/Pages/default.aspx

Polls open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m.

Voters in Jackson County will decide who will serve the remainder of Mike Byrd's term as sheriff. If no candidate receives more than 50 percent support tonight, a runoff will be held between the two to finishers. That runoff is November 25.

Waveland voters must visit two polling places today. At one precinct, they vote on the federal and judicial races. At the other precinct, they cast ballots in Waveland's municipal elections. Six democrats and one republican qualified for the Waveland mayoral primary. If a runoff is necessary, it will be in two weeks. The Waveland general election is December 2.

And voters across the state will weigh in on congressional and judicial races, as well as a proposed amendment to make hunting and fishing a constitutional right in Mississippi.

After you vote, turn to WLOX and WLOX.com for the latest election results. Our coverage of the 2014 Vote begins just after 7:00 tonight on WLOX.com. Doug Walker and Dave Elliott will host a three hour live streaming event that focuses on the mid-term elections. They'll talk with political experts like Trent Lott to get their take on who's winning, and what the results may mean for Mississippi.
