Mississippi has the distinction of having 1.8 million registered voters. That's means 80 percent of its voting age population is registered to vote. On the flip side, that also means more than 400,000 people who are of voting age are not registered to vote.
If you are one of the 400,000, you have a chance to get registered in time to vote in the November 8 Presidential Election. But the deadline for registration is October 8.
Our right to vote is our way of having a say in the way our government operates. Make time to register. Then make time to vote November 8th. That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
